    is it 2 tablespoons of tomato paste or 1? Recipe says one and video says 2? I guess I could be kind of safe and use 1.5 ..

    This has become a quick, easy favorite in our household. Since I keep cans of chickpeas in the pantry, and usually have all the other ingredients in this dish on hand as well, it means I don't have to shop for anything to cook this! Very satisfying served over brown rice with a dollop of plain yogurt and cilantro on top. Can't beat it for cost and flavor.

    This recipe was great. My husband and two year old really loved it too. But I added more curry and a little more tomato paste and it was perfect.

    There was way too much curry powder in this recipe. And I felt like the chickpeas should have been boiled so they could turn out a lot softer.

    If you put curry powder in everything like you do then all Indian food is going to taste the same isnt it?
