College Student's Saucy Chickpeas

"An easy to assemble dish of chickpeas in a curry tomato sauce that is cooked in the microwave. Serve with plain rice or noodles. If you're using canned chickpeas (like we do here at college) make sure you drain and rinse them before adding them. Play with other spices too if you'd like."

This recipe gave me a great start and often you just need a basic idea to get you started. I started by sauteing mustard seed in a bit of olive oil. It pops for a while, then add chopped garli...
