First of all, HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone!!! :) *tomorrowisChristmas!!!*
Here's a nice quote for you all:
"Christmas is not so much as opening presents, as opening our hearts!"
So, the story behind this dish...
I actually wanted to make this with pasta noodles BUT I only realised I'm out of pasta after I started making the sauce hahah, so I ended up using rice instead! And it turned out pretty good! ;)
And the chickpeas! Aaah, I think roasting is the best way to cook chickpeas! I also have another recipe for roasted chickpeas here.
