My fiance is from India and we make a similar recipe on a regular basis. You don't need to add cornstarch to thicken the sauce. After the chick peas are softened, use a potato masher and mash them a little bit. Don't mash them all, just mash them so some get smushed. This will thicken the sauce naturally. Just let it simmer for a few minutes and it will thicken right up. I also add 1 tsp. garam masala, 1 tsp. turmeric, 1 tsp. of cumin, 2tsp. salt, and a little bit of cayenne pepper (around a 1/4 tsp). You can also use 1 tsp. of coriander if you like. Garnish with fresh cilantro when serving. We always use red onions and the tomatoes should be diced, not quartered like in the picture with the recipe. I love this recipe. It is really healthy and delicious.

My husband and I loved this!! We can't get enough of it! I was really excited to find an accessible indian recipe. I didn't have channa masala so I only used garam. Also, I used helpful suggestions from gnip. I mashed some of the chickpeas to thicken the curry and I added 1 tsp. turmeric, 1 tsp. of cumin,1 tsp. of coriander and a little bit of cayenne pepper (around a 1/4 tsp). I used red onions and then seeded and diced the tomatoes

This is very easy and tasty. I used 1 tsp. of garam masala because I couldn't find the other spice listed. Enjoyed it with naan with mango chuntey and almonds, indian-style cauliflower, indian-style eggplant, and indian-style okra (all from this site.)
