Are you one of the many people out there who are trying to cut back on their red meat consumption? To me, nothing can substitute for a great steak so I won't say this dish will make you forget your favorite tenderloin! But potatoes and chickpeas do make a great vegetarian meal - even if you are not a vegetarian! This curry dish is quick and easy to prepare. I usually wrap them in a flour tortillas so I can freeze them and pull them out for a quick workday lunch. Even though I add mango chutney inside the lunch wraps, I also take a bit extra a long for extra flavour.

Of course, they are also great as a main dinner meal sans tortilla - easy, quick and delicious. Naan bread would make a great accompaniment so you can slop up the leftover sauce on your plate! —Ceecee Lee

Very nice, excellent quick dinner, very tasty. I left out the chilli due to the existence of a fussy child.
