Ingredients (use vegan versions):

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 large clove garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon curry
    1 tablespoon tomato paste (I used ketchup)
    1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained, reserving 3 tablespoons liquid
    1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    fresh black pepper, to taste
    crushed red pepper, optional, to taste
    1 tablespoon margarine

Directions:

1. Heat oil on medium high heat.  Fry onions until slightly browned.  Reduce heat to medium.  Add garlic, curry, and paste.  

2. Stir and simmer about 2 minutes.  Add chickpeas, reserved liquid, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper.  Simmer 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.  

3. Add red pepper to taste.  Add margarine, stirring through to melt it.  Stir and simmer for 5 minutes more or until peas are softened and dish is hot.  Serve over rice.
