# Olive oil and knob of butter
# Fresh Coriander leaves for garnishing

  • Finely slice the onion and fry until golden brown
  • Add the ginger, garlic and green chili.
  • Make a paste by adding spices and tomato puree and splash of water (don’t add garam masala yet)
  • When oil separates add tin of tomatoes and bring to boil
  • Add cooked chick peas
