      Delicious! I too, used canned chickpeas. I also used just one tablespoon oil to cut down on the fat...and it was still delicious...and a bit spicy. We all loved it. Thanks very much!

      This was a really tasty recipe. I did use fresh chickpeas and was glad I did. For some reason they seemed a bit dry, perhaps next time I will use a bit more tomato. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe!

      I loved it! I used the fresh chickpeas but will use the canned version next time to save some time. The flavours are wondefull and not too spicy. Thank you for posting!
