Pour the vegetable oil into the large non-sticking frying pan and set it over stove with medium heat range. Wait until the oil is warm and add in the chopped onion slices. Fry them until tender and stir in the minced garlic, finely chopped fresh ginger root, ground cinnamon, chopped coriander, cayenne pepper, ground turmeric and some salt to taste. Continue stirring and frying until the salt dissolves properly.
Now, add in the rinsed and drained chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and top with some water. Keep on cooking until all the ingredients are tender and mix well.
Remove the mixture from heat transfer into large serving bowl or platter.
Right before serving, sprinkle the chopped fresh cilantro all over the salad in order to garnish it.
Now, it is up to you that either you want to serve it warm or chilled. Serve and enjoy!
