      This was really good. I didn't have black chickpeas, so I just used regular. I was afraid it would be too sour, but once I put it over the rice it was just fine. Instead of soaking the chickpeas overnight, I quick-soaked them for about an hour in boiling water, then cooked them completely before proceeding. For the water added later in the recipe, I used the cooking liquid from the chickpeas. I didn't measure it, but it looked like about 2 cups. I doubled the cayenne to 1 teaspoon and it still came out mildly spicy (for me). I plan to try this again when I get some black chickpeas and also add some vegetables so it's more of a one-dish meal. Thanks so much for sharing, Charishma!
