Note: To use canned chickpeas, start from step 2. In step 3, add 1 cup of water to pan with the chickpeas. Ginger-garlic paste can be found bottled in Indian markets or in a well-stocked supermarket. To make ginger-garlic paste from scratch, combine equal parts garlic and fresh ginger grated on a Microplane grater.
