The flavors in this dish were perfect! The bell peppers were a nice complement to the sauce and chickpeas. My husband actually added chicken to his, and he loved it too. We can't get enough of Indian food, and this vegetarian version is right up my alley!

I made this the other night and my husband and I both loved it! The flavor and spice was perfect. My husband added a little cayenne to his because he likes heat in all his dishes. It's such an easy recipe, well done!
