The fragrant and perfumed Garam Masala and sautéed garlic and onions make this vegan Chickpea Tikka Masala every bit as inviting as its meaty, dairy-packed counterpart. The defining flavor profile, Garam Masala, is a fragrant Indian spice combination that usually includes cumin, coriander, cinnamon, black pepper, cardamom, and other goodies.
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large onion peeled and diced
- 4 garlic cloves peeled and finely minced
- 1 tablespoon Garam Masala
- 2- inch piece of fresh ginger grated
- 1 fresh jalapeno pepper stem and seeds removed, finely minced
- 2 cans chickpeas drained and rinsed in a colander or 3 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
- 2 cans petite diced tomatoes 14.5 ounces each
- 1 cup of full-fat coconut milk
- 1 handful fresh cilantro leaves coarsely chopped
Optional for serving:
- hot cooked rice
- additional fresh cilantro for garnish
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan (2 quarts or larger) over medium heat. Add the diced onions and garlic and a pinch of salt and stir. Sautee the onions and garlic until partly translucent and slightly browned around the edges, about 4 minutes. Stir in the Garam Masala, the grated ginger, and the minced jalapeno and cook for another minute, or until very fragrant. Add in the chickpeas and diced tomatoes, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk and return to a simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro. Serve like a soup, over hot rice, or noodles, garnished with additional cilantro, if desired.
