Soak chick peas overnight and cook in sufficient water until cooked well. Drop tea bag in 1/4 cup of hot water, let it seep for 2 minutes. Remove and discard tea bag. Retain the water.

Grate medium sized onion, julienne ginger, slice green chilis length-wise and keep aside.

Heat cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, black pepper corns, shajeera and nutmeg in a skillet, on medium heat, while stirring constantly for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat, powder and keep aside.

Heat oil in a skillet and when oil is hot add grated onion, garlic paste, ginger pieces, green chili and sugar. Fry until onion turns pale brown.

Now add boiled chick peas and powdered spices and fry on medium heat for 5 minutes. Next add 1/2 cup of water, water seeped with tea and pomegranate seeds to the skillet and cook on low heat until all the water evaporates.

Garnish with 1/2 cup of chopped onion pieces and chopped coriander leaves. Serve very hot.
Any additional information:
Goes well with puri, paratha, naam and any kind of flat bread.

In case pomegranate seeds are not available you may use dry mango powder called "aamchur" in Hindi. This is available in most Indian grocery stores. Use 1 tsp. of this powder.
