And now a chickpea curry with an Indian flair.  I found this recipe in the Food and Drink magazine that the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) produces and it is so delicious and so easy to put together, truly a one-pot wonder.  This recipe doubles up on the protein by combining chickpeas and paneer, […]
