Easy Punjabi-Style Chickpea and Potatoes

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
10 ingredients
4 servings
I came up with this when I was in the mood for spicy potatoes, and immediately thought of my favorite side dish at the Jackson Diner buffet. This is a great sidedish but I also like it as a main meal too, with some rice or naan. Green peas would work in this recipe too, either as a third main ingredient or to replace the chickpeas, but I love the richness of the chickpeas and couldn't get over not only how close it was to Indian restaurant quality, but also how simple and quick it was to make! By accident better yet! You'll find it hard to believe it's homemade and from canned food better yet. The taste is very hot and spicy, and what I love the most is the way the kick sneaks up on you after a minute! :) Important note-- I created this dish by accident so I just ballparked the spices before tweaking measurements. This yields about 4 cups (I'd have about a 2-cup serving with one more leftover for the next day), so if you're planning on a potluck, larger amount to cook for your family, OAWC/OAMC, etc. you might want to use the multiplier on here to figure out the correct proportions for the ingredients.
