      Really, really good. Let me say that again- really, REALLY good. This is the first successful Indian recipe I have made with prepared curry powder. I used 1.5 cups chickpeas cooked from dried and left off the tomato puree and optional asafetida, as neither was on-hand. Easy to throw together and the flavor was just great. The fennel adds such a nice touch and this is just a very pretty dish too, with the tan chickpeas, red tomatoes and green cilantro. I served with Cardamom Flavoured Chicken Cardamom Flavoured Chicken and spiced rice and the flavors paired really well. I found the technique of making a paste with the curry powder interesting and it worked quite well. I used canned tomatoes, and did not have to add any water- I just used some of the liquid from the can. We cooked the tomatoes for a little before adding the chickpeas too, as we prefer to have our tomatoes pretty cooked, but we didn't want the chickpeas to get mushy. I did find this made more like 3-4 servings as a side, rather than the 2 listed. I loved this and am looking forward to making it again... Yum! Thanks, Troy!!
