Stewed Tomato Chickpea Curry

"🍅Stewed tomato chickpea curry🍅 The stewed tomatoes in this recipe lend a very distinctive and delicious flavor to this curry. If you can’t find stewed tomatoes, you can substitute with chopped tomatoes and it will still be delicious, but not quite the same flavor profile. 🍅"
