About this recipe: I love making this dish with lots of fresh tomatoes and garnish it with generous quantity of coriander. Great on top of rice or with ghee wali chapati or even tandoori roti.

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the cumin and ground red chilies, and cook for a few seconds until the spices are fragrant. Add the green chiles, onions, kabuli chane, lemon juice, and water; season to taste with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with ginger, tomatoes, and coriander to serve.
