Something else.I added a tin of Napolina chopped tomatoes that I briefly blended with my hand blender.It provided a lovely additional flavour that complemented the chick peas and the spices perfectly, reminding me of some Moroccan dishes that I've tried.-15 Mar 2009

This was a surprisingly easy recipe to make - if you prepare the ingredients ahead of time (such as chopping the coriander and ginger) it's barely any trouble to make - especially if you take the lazy route (like me) and use boil-in-the-bag basmati rice!The taste is wonderfully warming although a little spicier than some people (not me) might like. If you're wondering I would compare the spiciness to a jar of Dopiaza cooking sauce.-15 Mar 2009
