  1. Mmmm, this sounds REALLY yummy!!

  2. I just wanted to say this a great recipe! I love Indian food and really enjoy making Indian recipes. I’m glad to see some Indian recipes included as most of them are easily made into a kosher version. I make a chickpea dish called chole which is very similar to the above except no tomatoes and the spices are little different. I think it would be great to add a recipe for rajma which is another Indian dish of kidney beans and tomatoes. Very simple and I’m sure everyone would enjoy it.

    Jamie – Can this dish be made with canned chickpeas, or is it best with dried? Thanks!

    • the canned chick peas most probably will become a real mush after 8 hours. The flavor will still be great but if you want the chickpeas to both retain their shape and have a little more body go with the dried.

    • I make a cholent with chickpeas and often use canned and they actually retain their shape.

      • Thanks Tamar for the comment – we actually have been throwing canned chickpeas into our chulent too lately and have also found them to retain their shape! So YAY for canned chickpeas in the slow cooker.

        Same here!

  4. tried recipe, BUT my chickpeas were to hard. Were they supposed to be boiled after soaking for over 24 hrs.??

    • No need to boil they should have cooked through. You can try it on high for half the time and test for doneness or used canned chickpeas.

    can this recipe be made without a crockpot?

    • you can try a heavy-bottomed pot(so the contents don’t burn) over a low flame, covered.

    What size crockpot is this recipe meant for? Thank you.

    In a time pinch, can I cook on high for some time and then turn to low?

  8. Hey – great-looking recipe and great website overall. Just a quick Q – my wife is breastfeeding and one of the things she can’t eat is cauliflower. Will leaving that out seriously affect the overall taste, or can it do fine without it? Or maybe there’s an alternative to cauliflower you could suggest? Thanks so much in advance!

    • hmmmm so it certainly adds bulk and substance to this dish without the cauliflower it’s really just a lighter chickpea side dish which would still be good just not as substantial of a side (you could also sub in broccoli for the cauli but I am guessing that may also be on the don’t eat while breastfeeding list…?)

    Oh, this is absolutely perfect! I’m a vegan and I get so sick of making the same stew each Shabbos. Thanks!
