Pretty good. There's an error in the recipe, it says to add garlic but the ingredients list doesn't seem to have garlic listed, so I only added a little powdered garlic, just to see how it'd come out.<br/><br/>I think I'll use tomato sauce or something next time, the chopped tomato was a bit much tomato for me, as I do like chickpeas. Overall a pretty good curry

I tried making it with chickpeas I prepared from dried, and it didn't work out very well (mostly because the chickpeas were grainy). I'll have to try again with canned next time.
