These are fabulous. I also used a premixed garam masala spice mix, but otherwise followed the recipe. I used the chickpeas as the main filling in a wrap, with hummus, shredded carrots and shredded beets. Fantastic!
Nice and simple, great with rice! It has a very good flavor. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
I just wanted to add my 5 stars to this delicious recipe!
Spice it up a little more if you like, but it's perfect the way it's written. It's my go-to side dish when asked to friends house for pot-luck dinners. You'll never any left overs with this one. Enjoy!
I loved this. I cheated a bit and used premixed Garam Masala since there's a huge jar of it in the cupboard. The rest of the recipe was prepared exactly as written. Thanks for posting this delicious veggie main course. Made for Photo Tag.
OH, I liked this and it was so easy! DH didn't care for it and pouted his way to some leftover tuna casserole (groan!), but I liked it enough for both of us. I did make some yummy changes I'll share here--to cut back on fat I used 1/8 c oil and 1/8 c chicken broth to saute. I added 1 small chopped tomato during the saute as well, as suggested by Pritha. I also mashed some of the chickpeas for a thicker consistency. Finally, I used one 19 oz can chickpeas and two cups of cooked cauliflower instead of two cans chickpeas. I had a taste for more veggies and thought this would work well. Sure did! Thanks for posting; this is definitely a keeper. Served with Bread Machine Naan and Roasted Okra along with a dollop of plain yogurt and cucumbers. Delicious! Made for October 2008 Veg*n swap.
My mom gave me a similar recipe for this- in Bengali culture- its known as Chole. Anyway- I also add some cut tomatoes in the pan with the onions to be sauted. I also like to have the sauce be a little thicker and goopier so as the chickpease are cooking and getting softer, I mash some of them up so the chickpeas are no longer whole. My (italian) boyfriend LOVES this dish!
