Egg Tikka Masala with Chickpeas

This recipe came together on a Friday night when I had a handful of staple ingredients that I needed to put together into a meal. The classic flavors of this dish bring together tomatoes, yogurt and fenugreek leaves and I loved how well they came together with eggs and chickpeas.
This is a nice change from the usual ways that I cook chickpeas and the eggs add a comforting richness that is both filling and hearty.


2 tablespoons oil (olive or grapeseed oil)
1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
1 medium sized red onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
2 cups fresh diced tomatoes or a 14-ounce can
1/2 cup of whole Greek yogurt or light sour cream
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup cooked chickpeas
4 to 6 hard boiled eggs, (can be halved)
1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves (kasuri methi)
1 teaspoon fresh garam masala
Chopped cilantro to garnish
Additional butter or clarified butter if desired
