This is a wonderful dish. Nothing fancy, but delicious. The beauty of it is that if you cook indian/southeast asian food on anything like a regular basis, you have all these ingredients just lying around. I was on the tail end of a four hour drive home, thinking about all the nothing in my fridge when I remembered I had canned chickpeas and tomatoes, and voila! This recipe was top of the search engine. I did not follow this recipe to a tee, so I cannot attest to its proportions, but if you are a relatively adequate cook you should be able to throw these ingredients in a pan and make something hearty, spicy and alluring. Perfect for a chilly autumn or winter dinner.
Tomato Chickpea Curry
