You’ll come home to a fragrant cloud of Indian spices. Cook up some quick rice and dinner is served.

    This is a great dish – chickpeas love spice and I would be quite happy to lift the lid on a crock pot to be met with a heavenly cloud of Indian spices.

    I wonder if you can use dry chickpeas… I wonder if it needs to sit overnight in water before cooking in the crock pot. If you have tested this method, let me know :)

    Adelina – you could definitely use raw beans, soaking them overnight first.

    Love the sound of this dish. I can’t get enough of chickpeas or curries or any sort. I would have to add a bit of chicken or something to make the man happy but this dish sounds awesome to me!

    We made this for dinner today. Everyone liked it, even my picky son who was pleasantly surprised. Next time I need to double it.

    @Jennette – that’s great! Thank you for coming back to tell me!

    Love chickpea curry! Yours looks like a good one, too, with the fresh garlic and ginger. The recipe I’ve been using lately also uses whole cloves (I’ve even tossed in whole cardamoms a few times) – give it a shot!

    The photo looks like it has tomatoes in it but the recipe doesn’t call for any. Did you add tomatoes?

  17. Stephanie Saunders writes:

    Cindy, that’s cooked bell pepper, not tomato.

  18. Pip writes:

    This looks delish. What size of crock pot was used?

  19. Stephanie Saunders writes:

    Thanks Pip! I made it in a 3 quart slow cooker. You could also double the recipe and make it in a larger one.

    I made this tonight and it seems really dry. I threw a little water in with it do it wouldn’t burn, some pieces against the sides still burned since I didn’t add much liquid. Do you ever add liquid?
