tamarind-chickpeas recipe

Date:    Fri, 14 May 93 22:44:12 PDT
 From:    ""Michelle R. Dick"" (artemis)
 Here's a great recipe adapted from _Sundays at Moosewood
 Restaurant_.  Nice and tangy, goes well with rice or couscous.
 	1 med onion, chopped
 	3 cloves garlic, minced
 	2 small chiles, coarsly chopped
 	1/2 cup water
 	1 T tamarind concentrate
 	1/2 cup hot water
 	1 med tomato, chopped (or two Romas)
 	1 inch piece of ginger, grated
 	2 cups canned or cooked chick peas (garbanzos)
 Saute onion, garlic, and chiles in a saucepan using 1/2 cup water
 until onions begin to carmelize (about 10 minutes), adding more water
 if necessary to keep from burning.
 Mix the tamarind concentrate in 1/2 cup hot water.  Combine the onion
 mixture, tamarind, tomato, and ginger. Puree.  Return puree to pan,
 add chick peas and simmer for half an hour until sauce is thick.
 Serves 3-4
