Rushin' Chickpea Curry!

“I call this Rushin' Chickpea Curry because I surely did make it up in a rush *laugh*. I was too busy to think about looking up a recipe, and too sick of the usual to make something I knew by heart, so I just took ingredients out of the fridge and cabinet and through everything together in a huge rush! This is what I came up with!”
