Chana Masala Version 3

Chana Masala attempt #1: spinach, no tomato, too much liquid

Chana Masala attempt #2: tomatoes, cumin seeds bloomed in oil

Attempt #3 can still be with dried garbanzo beans if you have the time to prepare, but I used canned. I also still want to use bloomed cumin seeds, but my spices went stale. 

1/2 tsp cumin seeds (again, I did not have it so I just added more cumin powder)
2 cups homemade garbanzo beans (or 2 cans, strained)
1 large onion, diced
1 can diced or stewed tomatoes, strained
3 tsp garam masala
6 cloves garlic, diced
2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 cup water
salt to taste
Cilantro to taste
juice from 1 lemon
1 large bunch spinach

Water saute the onions until translucent. Add the spices. If using the cumin seeds, heat a bit of oil, let it crackle, then saute the onions and add spices. Add the rest of the ingredients except the spinach and cook down. Taste. Before serving, add spinach and let it melt a little.
