Notes

  1. If you don’t have all the spices in the list, the most important ones are: curry powder, cumin, coriander, and smoked paprika.
  2. Remember to drain and rinse the chickpeas to remove the aqua fava (the dense liquid they come in).
  3. Try to cut your potatoes roughly the same size dice so they cook evenly and at the same time.
  4. Add the spices to the onions and garlic before adding any liquid so they can fully release their fragrance.
