Garbanzo Stew

This vegetarian entree is a great introduction to Indian food --- subtly spiced with garam masala, curry and turmeric, the latter two of which can be found in the spice section of your supermarket. Garam masala, a mixture of ground spices such as cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, cumin, nutmeg and black peppercorns, is often found in gourmet grocery stores or in the Middle Eastern sections of supermarkets.
