  1. Chana Masala:

    • Combine garlic, ginger, chillies, 1 tbsp lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp salt in a small work bowl of a food processor and process until a fine paste is produced.
    • Heat Rafhan Corn Oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the cumin. They will sputter and spit for a few seconds. As soon as they are aromatic (about 15 seconds), add onion, all at once. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions start to leave a brown coating on the bottom of the pan, 3 to 4 minutes. Add 1 tbsp of water, scrape up browned bits from the pan, and continue cooking. Repeat this process until onions are a deep brown, about 10 minutes total.
    • Add the ginger garlic paste, all at once and stir to combine. Add coriander, turmeric, Knorr Professional Chicken Soup Stock and 1 tsp garam masala. Stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and crush them using a whisk or potato masher. Add drained, rinsed chickpeas and cilantro, reserving a little cilantro for garnish. Add 1/2 cup water.
    • Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid slightly cracked, and reduce heat to maintain a gentle bubbling. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid has reduced into a thick stew and spices have melded, about 30 minutes.
    • Stir in remaining garam masala and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt.
