From the Test Kitchen

At the heart of this dish is our savory tomato chutney (made with ingredients traditional to Indian cuisine like tart tamarind, mustard seeds, and more), which helps create the vibrant sauce used to simmer our spiced beef, chickpeas, and vegetables until deliciously tender.

This recipe was created in partnership with the wellness experts at WW. To learn more about WW and SmartPoints® visit ww.com

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.

In a bowl, combine the yogurt and 1 tablespoon of water; season with salt and pepper.

Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned and just cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
