Excellent to scoop up with pita bread or serve over rice and even more tasty reheated the next day.



Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and cook the onions until tender.

Stir in garlic, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, salt, cayenne, and turmeric and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in garbanzo beans and continue to cook, while stirring, until all ingredients are well blended and heated through. Remove from heat, very lightly mash, stir in cilantro, and serve.
