    2. 2
      Remove and cover and stir in cayenne, paprika, ginger, salt, pepper, cumin, cardamom and tomato paste. Add chickpeas and water and bring to a boil.
    3. 3

      This made a great side dish for the African meal I made. I used half of a 6oz can of tomato paste instead of one tablespoon, and it was just right. I could definitely eat this as a vegetarian meal on top of rice or couscous - it's that good. It is, however, very different from the chickpea wat I've had at Ethiopian restaurants. It's more of an Americanized take on the dish, but that's ok with me as it still has some great exotic flavors. Thanks for sharing.
