Cook the chana masala
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Rinse the chickpeas.
In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the mustard seeds and cook until they start to pop, about 1 minute. Add the chickpeas, chana masala base, green chiles, tamarind paste, garam masala, and ½ cup [¾ cup] water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until just thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the garnish and naan.
Prep the garnish; toast the naan
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the naan, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast it in a toaster oven. Tear the naan into pieces.
Transfer the chana masala to individual bowls, garnish with the cilantro, and serve the toasted naan on the side.
- Measure the onion.
- Rinse the chickpeas.
- Measure the water for the chana masala.
- Garnish with the cilantro.
