Recipe Note:-

1 Adjust the curry powder to your personal liking. The curry powder I used was not mild because I like spicy food, you can use as per your taste, make sure to check before adding too much, so your curry doesn’t get too spicy.

2 I used completely fresh ingredients for this dish, so instead of canned diced tomatoes & canned chickpea, I used fresh diced tomatoes. Overnight soaked chickpea in water and pressure cook in next morning.

3 It’s easy to get the seasonings from your local Indian supermarket or spice store.

4 Serve this curry with brown rice for a healthier version or with plain white rice, Indian bread, naan, bhature.
