    I tried this last night and I love it!
    Only thing, I'm going to either omit the salt or put less, found it a bit too salty, but that's a matter of personal preference!
    All in all, a great recipe! - 8/25/09

    The only thing I did different was that I blended it up well. I used 2 C of it in my soup as a thickner and it was VERY GOOD! - 6/5/09

    Yum! This was incrediblly delicious. It filled my whole kitchen with the delicious curry-smell. I did end up adding a bag of mixed vegetables and serving over brown rice. - 4/17/09

    I cooked this for myself since my wife is less of an Indian/curry person. I will be fixing this a lot. I may add other ingredients, mushrooms and green peppers but I won't change the original spices etc. they are perfect! Thanks for sharing a great, and healthy, recipe.

    So good! I doubled the recipe, used only 1 T of olive oil , added 1.5 cups frozen turnip greens to boost the nutrition. Reserved the liquid from one can of chickpeas, used a can of no salt added diced tomatoes. Cut down on amount of water added, used 1/2 t kosher salt, 2 T tomato paste. Yum! - 10/19/09

    I made this for my tea tonight, it was absolutely wonderful! Great job, would definitely make again! - 7/22/08

  • I love this recipe. The powdered ginger gives a slight bitter aftertaste, but when made with fresh ginger it's perfect. Omitted the oregano. For the non vegetarians among us - it's also delish with chicken added. - 4/7/13

  • I normally make a potato curry using chickpeas and coconut milk but this recipe is a lot quicker to make. The taste is an acquired taste; I don't know if i will make it again. Served it over brown rice. - 3/24/13

  • Wonderful recipe for those nights I don't feel like cooking much. I will probably not have all 5 tsps of curry powder be the hot stuff next time, maybe a 3/2 split with some mild stuff. But really, a great blend of spices and flavors. Thanks! - 3/5/13

  • If you use dried chickpeas instead of canned ones, you may want to add extra salt. - 8/7/12
