  1. Heat a pot or dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add the shallot and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until soft and fragrant. Stir in the garlic, cooking for another 1 to 2 minutes. Add the curry powder, followed by the cream or coconut milk.
  2. Add the chickpeas and a splash of vegetable broth or water. Cook on low until the chickpeas are hot and tender, 6 to 8 minutes. If needed, add a splash or two of vegetable broth of coconut milk.

Tips + Tricks: If you want your chickpeas to have a bit more and/or thicker sauce, use more coconut milk or cream in place of the vegetable broth.
