Chickpeas Curry

chickpeas curry

Chickpea is a legume and high of protein, it is base ingredient to make Hummus, maybe I’ll make and post  Hummus recipe later, this time I made curry chickpeas, simple ingredients but it took a long time to prepare the chickpeas. Here I used dried chickpeas, you have to soak it over night first about 12 hours and boil it for 2 hours and then you can prepare it the way you like, you can keep the boiled chickpeas also in refrigerator, or mash and keep it in freezer.
