Garbanzo-Tomato Curry

This recipe I found while trying to find a yummy vegetarian meal to cook for my lovely friend Jovan.  After being picky and wanting a new sort of flavor in my life I decided that this dish coupled with cauliflower fritters would be perfect new taste and adventure (nerdy I know but it IS an adventure) haha.  Anyways this meal also can after a hellish weekend full of stomach flu and rice cakes....ie boring and shitty. Anyways I'm feeling better and cooking away again:)

Adapted from Sunset
Serves 4

The Ingredients
1 small yellow onioin, chopped finely
1 1/2 tablespoons ginger, grated
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 can tomatoes, diced (keep fluid)
Olive oil
Cottage cheese for garnish (optional)

The Process
1.  In a large skillet add some olive oil and heat over medium high heat, then add onion, garlic and ginger.  Cook until mixture begins to brown about 6 mintues.

2.  Add garbanzo beans, tomatoes (with juice), curry powder, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, cayenne and salt to taste, mix well.  Bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered for about 6-10 minutes to thicken.

3.  Put on plate (with cauliflower fritters) and put some dollops of cottage cheese on all and eat eat eat!
