"Indian food is not just curried sauces. It's not too exotic either. Unless 'exotic' is code for 'yummy and full of flavor.' This dish features a healthy mixture of chickpeas, tomatoes, onion, and spices. Both carnivores and vegetarians will enjoy this meal. My kids love it. Leave out the green chile if the kiddies will be eating. Serve over basmati or jasmine rice and enjoy. Namaste y'all!"

1 (15 ounce) can

I just chopped the vegetables, I did not make this into a paste. The taste was hot and spicy, the way I enjoy my food!
We enjoyed this. I didn't measure any of the ingredients, just went by smell and taste, but kept the proportions close to the recipe, because I started with dry garbanzo beans. I would surely make this again.
