Ole Chole!

This week is poor student week so all of my recipes are made from simple ingredients and are mostly vegetarian. This is another quick and easy recipe for you, and absolutely yummy and authentic tasting Indian. You may have noticed I used two different languages for this recipe.. I served my Indian Chole up with some baked Corn Tortilla. Culture combination cos I cant afford Pappadoms, and had leftover Tortilla from Tuesdays Falafel Wrap. Genius. So the key to this recipe is really the mixture of spices. There is a hundred different variations for Chole out there but here is mine... 
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 t Ginger
1 Chilli - Fry in large pot with 1 T Oil
1 chopped Onion
1 t Coriander  
1 t Cumin
1/2 t Turmeric
2 t Garam Masala
Fry until Onion is cooked through - don't freak if the spices are sticking to the pot, its just the flavour brewing!
Add 1 Can Chopped Tomatoes and 1 Can Chickpeas
Simmer for 15minutes
Stir through a dash of Coconut Cream and serve (with Baked Tortilla Chips if you wanna be all international!)
