Tomato curry is popularly known as 'onion tomato masala' in India. It is a base for many delicious curries. You can make this curry ahead of time and freeze it for months. Then, when you want to make a curry, reheat the curry and add beans, vegetables, meat, or even seafood, and your curry is ready. I hope you enjoy this classic base recipe.
This is an Ethiopian-inspired chickpea stew for the fall/winter season. It does take some planning, but I have seen that soaking raw red kidney beans and cooking them over three hours results in a better stew than using canned beans. I am offering a substitute for the Berbere spice, which is a quintessential spice in this recipe. You can find this spice at your local Ethiopian store or on Spice and Tea Exchange.
I learned this recipe for Eggplant Caviar when I was in Paris. It was being served at restaurants, and food magazines featured the recipe. Although in France, they bake the eggplant, I choose to roast it. Roast for 3 minutes on each side (12 minutes total) on the gas stove.
