This past week a close friend was having a rough week and I wanted to make her something delicious so she didn't have to worry about dinner on top of everything else going on. Since she is a vegetarian and loves curry, I knew I wanted to make something with chickpeas and curry. So when I saw this recipe on Cookin Canuck, it was the perfect solution. I love how an apple is used in place of the traditional brown sugar to sweeten things up. I also love that it is packed with veggies. This curry can be made using Thai or Indian curry, depending on what you prefer. It freezes great so don't be scared to make up a big batch and freeze individual servings for quick lunches.
