The garam masala spice added hints of coriander, pepper, cumin and cinnamon to this dish and I absolutely loved the flavor.


  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream (optional)


  1. Combine chickpeas through cauliflower together in crockpot.
  2. Place chicken on top of chickpea mixture and spoon mixture over the chicken to cover it.
  3. Allow everything to cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.
  4. Spoon into four dishes and garnish with cilantro and a dollop of plain Greek yogurt or sour cream.
