    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    The humble chickpea is low in fat, rich in fibre, complex carbohydrate, and protein, and is a good source of calcium, iron and B vitamins. I'm not a huge fan of canned soups, but they do have their uses sometimes! This sauce could be used with anything, but goes well with chickpeas and new potatoes. Paneer cheese is also delicious.

      This is really great! I love how versatile this is, sometimes I skip the soup and cream and throw in yogurt. I've added frozen peas, carrots or squash too and its always great. Cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne are nice additions. If it's too runny I throw some in the blender and toss it back in to thicken it up. Really good over bulgur, couscous or brown rice. Freezes well too, I make enough for four meals and freeze it. Thanks for such a lovely recipe.

      Made it last night again DD came in and couldn't stop raving about how wonderful the house smelled. I had to bar everyone from the kitchen since it was oamc day and they wanted it now! thanks again

      Delicious, thanks! I used a can of tomato soup and yogurt in place of the condensed soup and cream, and it turned out great.

      I was hesitant to make this recipe because I've used some of the spices it calls for with no success. I'm glad I did try it (most recipes on this website with 5 stars are delish!) because it turned out to be the first good indian-style dish I've ever made. Thanks!!!
