Step 1

Add two tbsp vegetable oil to a frying pan. Surface area in the pan is going to help move this along.

Step 2

Add the onions and cook over medium heat until the onions are well browned. Stir once in a while. This takes about 15 minutes. Keep going until they are soft and brown. This is important.

Step 3

This will give you something to do while the onions cook. Put the whole spices in a little bowl. Or toss them on the counter.

Step 4

Combine all the ground spices (except the pomegranate seeds) in a small bowl.

Step 5

Heat 3 Tbsp over medium heat in a second frying pan.

Step 6

Add the whole spices and cook until the oil starts to bubble. This takes about 30 seconds.

Step 7

Add the green chili. Cook for about 30 seconds. Add the garlic ginger paste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until it stops sputtering, about another minute.

Step 8

Turn the heat to medium low. Add the ground spices and mix to get them well coated in oil. Be careful. You don't want the spices to burn. Cook for about 30-45 seconds to let the spices bloom. This is a great restaurant trick. Instantly removes that nasty raw spice taste.

Step 9

Add the pureed tomato. Bring to a simmer. Mix in the onions. Add the pomegranate seed and chickpeas. Add a half cup of water and bring to simmer.

Step 10

Cover with whatever cover fits (nobody ever said it has to match) and simmer for about 10 minutes. If the curry seems a bit dry add a little more water.

Step 11

Garnish with a bit of red onion if you like. Serve with your choice of Indian flatbread. Chapatis, parathas pooris and naan all work really well.
