I have kept the spicing mild for the wee ones. Feel free to adjust.
- 3 tomatoes, diced
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp garam masala
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1 2/3 cup cooked chickpeas (i.e. the rest of the can if you are making the naan triangles as well)
- 1-2 tbsp tomato paste
1. Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, and spices in a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan and bring to bubbling over medium heat, stirring frequently. Simmer for 5 mins to allow the onion to cook and mellow a bit.
2. Add chickpeas and cook for 10 mins, uncovered, stirring frequently. Add in tomato paste until desired consistency is reached. Serve over rice.
I pressed the rice into a metal ring with the back of a spoon to make the presentation more interesting for the kiddies. Works every time.
