Eggplant-and-Tomato Masala With Chickpeas
Delicious dinner alert! This hearty, Indian-inspired vegetarian recipe comes together in under 30 minutes and still manages to build intense flavor. That’s because you’ll layer in seasonings twice: First, cumin, mustard seeds, and coriander, which stew with the onions and eggplant, and then garam masala and cilantro stems, which simmer up with canned chickpeas and fire-roasted tomatoes. Shopping tip: Japanese eggplants are longer and thinner than the Italian variety, and tend to be less bitter.
