Better with some modifications

Added garlic, onion, and grated fresh ginger in addition to cumin. Chick peas that you cook yourself improve the overall texture of the dish as well. Healthy and easy to make!

inexpensive, easy, ingredients on hand

Just OK

For me, the Indian flavours didn't really come through in this dish. It was still a very tasty way to have greens, but just not what I expected.

Served this with a baked potato with sour cream to make a complete meal.

Not enough flavor

The Indian spices are nice, but with that much kale I had to add sugar and apple cider vinegar, which is the way my father always makes kale. The sweet and sour overpower the bitterness and the smoky garam masala is a nice touch. The chickpeas are good, but they don't really add much. If I made this again I'd just skip the chickpeas and use them for something else.

Good use of greens

I added turmeric, slightly

I added turmeric, slightly more turmeric and a pinch of red chili powder and then sprinkled garam masala on the finished dish. Made a big difference.

not enough flavor; I had to add more cumin, more coriander and I added some chili powder. There are better recipes for kale w/Indian flavors.
