This was my first time eating dried garbanzo beans. I wasn't sure how long I needed to cook them. I will experiment with them some more.

Love chickpeas, love curry type dishes and for me bowl meals are one of my favorites, so no surprise this is a winner at my house! Add in the vegetarians are going to love this one. Served over Jasmine rice makes for a great meal. Will be seeing to repeats.
