    Next add cumin, coriander, turmeric, and bay leaf and stir to coat. Add a little bit of water if it starts to stick. Mix in diced tomatoes, chickpeas, salt and pepper to taste and 1 cup of water.

  • Step 3

    Increase heat to medium-high until it starts to boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the mixture becomes thick. Stir occasionally.
