An easy to assemble dish of chickpeas in a curry tomato sauce that is cooked in the microwave. Serve with plain rice or noodles. If you're using canned chickpeas (like we do here at college) make sure you drain and rinse them before adding them. Play with other spices too if you'd like.

I used a half a can of diced tomatoes that also included onions and green peppers. I also added a bit of cumin (to taste) and served it over rice. My boyfriend loved it! It tastes even better the next day. This recipe shows some promise...play around with it I say. Read More

Very similar to chana masala. A can of coconut milk 'smoothes' out the curry flavor- and don't forget to add sauteed onions if you can it totally makes the dish! Read More

This recipe gave me a great start and often you just need a basic idea to get you started. I started by sauteing mustard seed in a bit of olive oil. It pops for a while then add chopped garlic spices such as curry basil cumin red pepper etc. and saute a bit more. Then add tomatoes and garbanzos with some veggie broth and the key ingredient 1-2 T fresh lime juice and simmer for 15-20 minutes (while the rice is cooking!) yum! Read More

I'm really into chickpeas right now so I thought I'd give this one a try. I made a couple of changes to this recipe. I sauted some garlic and onion then added the chickpeas and tomatoes. I used the stovetop rather than the microwave. I also cut down on the amout of curry I used 3 tsp and it was enough for me. I made white rice to go with it. This recipe was ok although I don't know if I'll make it again. Read More

Not sure why my review was deleted. Anywho- this was a good basic dish. I don't have curry powder so I used a bit more of the garlic powder added some crushed red pepper flakes and a bit of pizza sauce for added flavor. Thanks for the post YummySmells. Read More
