Lazy Spicey Chick Pea Soup (for a chilly winter evening)

image

Garam Masala (Hot spices) is a very popular blend of spices in pakistan and india. Brown cardamom, Green Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg , Mace and black pepper are the main ingredients. However cumin seed, caraway and bay leaves are also used. In punjab it is further diluted with coriander powder.

“L” is for lazy, and in this case, a soup so good, I ate it all before I got a photo.

  • Soak about 1/3 of cup dried chick peas, overnightCiecierzyca-01
  • Drain and rinse, cover with water and bring to boil.
  • Simmer until just about tender. (About an hour, to an hour and a half)
