I love Indian food! I recently had chickpea masala at a restaurant and decided to try to make it myself. It turned out great!

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 (15 oz.) cans chickpeas, drained
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 Tbsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala


  1. Dice onions. Heat oil in a large skillet, then cook mustard seeds and onion until onion is translucent. WARNING: I was surprised to find that mustard seeds leap out of the pan while they cook, so have a lid of screen handy! :)

  5. Add coconut milk, stirring well. Simmer mixture until it start to thicken.
