I made this over the weekend without much expectation. I was wrong. This is easy and very tasty!
1 onion -- chopped
2 cloves garlic -- minced
2 Tbls oil
1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can of coconut milk (I used light)
A bag of frozen mixed vegetables (or whatever fresh kind you have on hand)
2 potatoes -- cubed and boiled until tender
1 14.5 can of garbanzo beans -- drained and rinsed
Water -- as needed
1 Tbls garam masala
1 Tbls curry powder
1 Tbls ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
salt to taste
In a large pot heat the oil. Add onion and garlic. Cook for five minutes and then add, garam masala, curry powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt. Stir until the mixture is fragrant. Add a bit of water, maybe about half a cup. Bring to a simmer and then add the tomatoes, potatoes, garbanzo beans, and vegetables. If consistency is still too thick, add more water. If not, then add the coconut milk and salt to taste. Simmer for ten minutes.
I served this over rice.
