Indian Style Chick Peas


Indian Style Chick Peas Recipe

Ingredients (use vegan versions):


  • 1 large onion, chopped coarsely
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon each cumin,
  • 2 cans chickpeas (about 3 1/2 cups I think)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 tablespoon no-fat tomato paste (if I can’t find this, I boil down tomato sauce until it’s thickened)
  • 2 teaspoon peanut butter



Saute onion and garlic in nonstick pot until slightly browned. Add
Indian spices and cook about 30 seconds, or until spices start to give
off wonderful smells and turn slightly brown. Add chick peas WITH HALF
THEIR LIQUID if canned, with some cooking broth if cooked from
scratch. Add lemon juice and tomato paste. Cook about 10 minutes, to
let chickpeas heat through. Stir in peanut butter and cook a few
minutes more. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve over

Best served up with slices of warmed Indian Bread (such as Naan, Chapatti, Roti, etc).

May also be eaten with your favourite Indian bread (instead of rice) for a healthy snack food.
