Mushrooms in Spicy Tomato Sauce

2 large onion -- chopped
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 pounds fresh mushrooms -- sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons cumin seed
28 ounces canned tomatoes -- chopped
2 cups cooked chickpeas -- or 19 oz can, drained
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt

Braise the onions in water for 2-3 minutes then add cumin seed and mushrooms.

Continue cooking over medium heat until onions are soft and mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes with their juice to the onion mixture, then chickpeas and other spices.

Cook for 20 - 30 minutes or longer, until the mushrooms are tender and most of the liquid has disappeared.

Salt to taste.
