The Other Day, when i was blog-hopping, Came across this Wonderful Recipe Silken Chickpea Gravy from Holy Cow Vegan Recipes. First thing that got me to try that recipe was that Vaishali has told that it was from a Book named "Appetite for Reduction"!!!! :) For Somebody who is trying to loose some weight for a very long time, that sounded like Sweet Music!!!! :) I have tried the recipe my own way, Please follow the link for the Original Recipe

1-1/2 cups Chickpeas, Soaked overnight
2 Small Tomatoes, Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 green chilli Slitted
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Coriander Powder
a Small piece of Ginger
Salt to taste

Take the Chickpeas in a Microwave Safe Bowl,add Water just to immerse the chickpeas and Microwave High for 10 minutes.  Drain the excess water  and take it a mixer and Grind it to a fine paste along with green chilli.

In a Pan, add oil, add cumin seeds, let them roast, then add garlic and chopped tomatoes. Add a 1/2 cup of Water. Add the Red Chilli powder, Coriander powder and Salt. Once the Tomatoes are well Cooked and mashed out completely, add the grounded chickpeas and another 1 cup of water. Mix Well and Cook in a simmer flame for 5-10 minutes. Put off the flame and Garnish with fresh coriander. Serve Hot with Roti/Rice. We enjoyed with Roti's!!!!
