Hello, Ive grown up with eating stews like that, pickled cabbage with meat was a staple ,but adding chickpeas seems very interesting. Sagol!

Turkish women add chickpeas in stews or soups or pila, etc. I think chickpeas give fullness and extra taste. I always have chickpeas in my pantry as a saver:) Sen de sagol!
