Who said that delicious food has to be complicated? While this chickpea bowl may not be something you can find in a Burmese restaurant, it is packed with Burmese condiments like fried red chili flakes, shallots, garlic, onions, and crushed peanuts. You can also make this with pre-cooked chickpeas, however, the joy of tasting a freshly boiled, hot, steamy, creamy chickpea is unparalleled!
