Fragrant Chickpea Stew Print Email

When time is of the essence, this hearty stew makes a quick meal. It has a complex, almost beefy flavor that develops when the onion and garlic are cooked until dark brown. Accompany with steamed rice or whole-wheat flatbread.

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 medium red onion, chopped (1 cup)
5 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon coriander seeds, ground (see Ingredient Note)
1 cup water
1 red potato, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 19-ounce or 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1 medium tomato, cut into 1-inch cubes

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook cumin seeds for 10 seconds. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, until dark brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Add coriander; cook, stirring, for 20 seconds. Stir in water, potato, chickpeas, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon cilantro. Bring to a boil.
