A cousin of mine came over to lunch yesterday. She and husband are moving to Kochi next month and she was in town to see apartments and such stuff. We had rice, ladiesfinger (okra) sambar, a carrot and tomato salad, chickpea and cabbage curry with yogurt, of course!
Here is how to put together the curry. It is healthy (very little oil and low on calories), tasty and very easy to make. The only thing is you need to have cooked chickpeas on hand.
I usually soak larger quantities of chickpeas, cook and drain them well. Then I divide them into convenient portions and freeze them. This way, whenever I need chickpeas for some cooking, I can defrost/ thaw them.
