Chickpea Garam Masala

One of the easiest chickpea recipes to make, yet so tasty one. This vegetarian dish will require a little less than 20 mins of cooking.

It can be served on its own, with a bit of bread, or as a side for boiled rice or quinoa.

I think this is one of traditional Indian recipe. Tweak the taste to your liking by adjusting amount of spices or even spices themselves. The recipe calls for garam masala, but a good curry powder will work as well.

I always soak and boil chickpeas myself, drain them before using here (preserve a bit of water they were cooking in). Using canned ones is an option as well, it will certainly be quicker. If going this route, use water at step 10.
