Indochinese has always been my favourite , but when I tried with chickpeas I never expected it to have the perfect Indochinese taste but it was indeed very delicious..

It’s a good combination with rice and rotis and even breads. Till today I had just prepared Indian cuisine with chickpeas but it tastes amazing when cooked the Indochinese way .
