I love chick peas and Indian food. Marry them together in the dish called chana masala and you have a spicy and hearty main course.

Because I was short on time, I put all the veggies in my blender and pulsed it until fairly smooth. I let this mixture cook down quite a bit before I added the chick peas and spice mix.
Serve with white basmati rice or the rice of your choice.
