"This is definitely one of our favorite dishes. Being Indian, I make a few substitutions. Curry powder is basically a combination of different spices. I like to use them separately instead of curry powder, this way I can use more or less of any one to bring out a particular flavor. So, I use 1 tsp Garam Masala, 1 tsp Cumin powder,1 tsp coriander powder, 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder, a few cloves, a few curry leaves, a piece of cinnamon, one chopped Jalapeno (to spice it up) in the oil while frying the onions. Lastly,I use the fresh chick peas not canned. Soak for 2 hours & pressure for 20 mins. This is unbelievable, once you've had the fresh chick peas, you'll never eat the canned stuff again. With Naan, Basmatie rice & plain low fat yogurt on the side, this is like Nirvana to me."
