    Calamity-Kate's Note:

    This creamy chickpea curry is heavily adapted from a recipe I originally found in a cookbook. I found the original a little bland, so I added some extra ingredients and modified the cooking instructions to make it really "pop".

      This recipe is pretty good. One thing missing: Salt. I used light coconut milk instead of the full fat (that's what I had on hand) and added extra raisins (they really make this recipe). I also cut the recipe in half and got 4-5 servings out of it. I'll be making this again soon, but I may try switching up the spices. Thanks for sharing!

      Made exactly as stated. Good curry, would have liked a little more sauce though. I was skeptical about the raisins but they do belong in this curry and give the final touch. Thanks for posting.

      My vegetarian daughter was visiting. She had a craving for curry, and said she'd had Chickpea Curry before that was really good. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, but this version is really good.
