There are some tremendously good flavours in the second onion mixture, but the first, unspiced mixture and the chickpeas unfortunately dilute that flavour unacceptably when it's all mixed together. Next time I'll season the chickpeas as i boil them (I used dried), and I'll double the seasonings overall, plus add some more tomatoes. This recipe does need salt (added 1 tsp)! Cinnamon and cloves help too. Worth trying again with tweaks.
