Barbaras Comment on above recipe

This recipe calls for canned garbanzo beans, which is fine. I used dried and cooked for several hours in chicken stock and the following spices: Add cumin, coriander, saffron, chili, ginger (dried or real), cinnamon, paprika and cayanne for heat.

Then when I had cooked beans, I picked up the recipe. Key to cooking dried garganzo beans is to soak overnight. And never heavy boil, only light simmer. They are notorious for never softening if cooked at a heavy boil.

I’m sure yours will turn out great! -B
