    gailanng's Note:

    The age-old combination of rice and beans takes on a bit of an Indian flair. If you can’t find basmati rice, substitute Texmati, jasmine, or any long-grain rice. From Berkeley Wellness.

      We loved this Indian twist on beans and rice. I could not find a 19oz can of chickpeas, but the 15oz can I got seemed to be more than enough (I was serving it as a side anyway). The toasted almonds and cilantro add the perfect finish, and the dish tasted great alongside the curries I made. Thanks for sharing!
