We had a party 2 weeks ago, and didn't have a clue what to cook for my daughter who is vegetarian. Thanks for posting this recipe. I had everything in my cupboard and fridge. The peanut butter made a huge difference in flavour - made it very creamy as I have lactose intolerance.

This dish was so popular that I had to tell my daughter to get her food quickly! I have made it a lot and guess what I'm having for dinner tonight? Very quick, easy and cheap to make! I added loads of fresh coriander which made it taste really fresh and full of flavour!

Was skeptical over the PB. I just didn't like it at all!!! Overall just an okay flavor. I tried to override PB flavor with curry and hot sauce but it just didn't work. Maybe i will add less Pb or none at all next time.

this was yummy and easy! i used a can of Rotel which already had lime juice and cilantro in it, as i didn't have fresh cilantro or tomato paste. also didn't have peanut butter but am curious to try it next time. at the end i stirred in a little sour cream and it was delish over rice.

Excellent dish! Ingredients are not hard to find and cooking is straight-forward. Clean-up may be a bit more than usual. This dish overall is great: great taste, good looking, and *very* healthy! Plus it's vegetarian. : ) This is a meal which I would make for guests. When I made this meal tonight, I followed the instructions exactly except I added some olive oil when saute-ing the onions. I wonder how this recipe would taste with a little more peanut butter..

This is VERY good! It was easy and super fast to make, which is exactly what I need with a baby running around. I did not have any lemon juice, but it tastes fine. Also, I was hesitant to add the peanut butter because it sounds too odd. The next time I make this I will add the peanut butter to try it!!! Thanks so much for this recipe.

We liked this. I doubled the spices, onion, lemon and tomato paste, but I think I could have done even more to punch up the flavor. The peanut butter makes this a little different from most chana masala/chole recipes. Thanks, Kozmic.

Great flavor but had to add almost all the reserved liquid, like the idea of adding something green to it, next time.

I made this last night. It was my first time ever cooking chickpeas. It turned out very nice. I didn't use a blender (couldn't be bothered), I mashed 1/3 of the chickpeas in the pan with a potato masher, it turned out just fine. I saved all the liquid from the chickpeas and ended up gradually adding it all to the pan, instead of using water. Next time I might add some greenery, like green beans or something, just for variety.
