Chickpea Curry

It’s always a good idea to open up our culinary palettes and try new and exciting foods and flavors! Many times, ethnic foods use spices that we don’t use in traditional American food and that is good for your body and your taste buds! If you are new to eating curry, I hope that you love this recipe and it will become a staple in your house.
