Curried Chickpea Salad Using My Own Masala

This is not a real recipe per se. It was just me making use of the chickpeas as I really needed the aqua faba. I placed them into the bowl, and at the last-minute decided to make a curried chickpea salad.

When we built our swimming pool the first thing I did was show the dogs where the steps were. This entailed putting them into the pool and guiding them to where they could get out. I did it a few times, never actually letting them go until they were close to the step. After that I then let them paddle there, and get out on their own. This procedure was repeated when Scarlett came to us, hoping that the 8 week old puppy would not fall in. But she did, without us even hearing her. The only way I knew she had been in the pool was because she was totally wet from toes to ears. This must have given her a big fright as she will not come near the water. But it does not stop her from bullying Molly when they are standing near the water’s edge.

Since the drought we have had to put a cover on the pool. Ours is double protected with a retractable rolling deck. But when the deck is open we leave the cover on to keep the water warm. I have been constantly conscientious about knowing where the dogs are when the deck is open as I was worried that if they fell in they would become trapped underneath the cover. On Sunday Molly, our Jack Russel, came into the house with her paws and stomach drenched. When I went to inspect the pool I could see where she had either fallen in or been knocked in by Scarlett. The worst part of this is that I had not heard her. The best part was that the swimming lessons had paid off. Do you have a swimming pool, and is it covered?

  1. I love chickpeas…so tasty and versatile. I use them in so many dishes and roast them too!
    We have a pool and do have a soft pool cover only for Winter (so as we don’t have to clean the leaf waste in the cooler months). It is mandatory now where I live in Australia to have a pool fence, so that stops little people and our four legged friends falling in.

    1. Pool fences are great if your garden allows for them. We just have to have a walled property 🙂

  2. I do like chickpeas, Tandy. Our pool used to be netted but now that we have teenagers we don’t put the net on often.

    1. I think a net is so difficult to take on and off!

  3. No pool, but it was very clever of you to teach the dogs how to get out. The drought sounds terrible…

    Love chick peas–I’d eat them plain even so your dish sounds delicious!

  4. Great recipe idea. I make a similar salad using peas, but never thought of using chickpeas. When we lived in the USA we had a pool and couldn’t keep Chloe dog out of it. Now she only has a small children pool to play in, but in the summer she’s always in it.

  5. What a tasty looking salad Tandy! Oh no, that must be quite a source for anxiety for you. I think by law in Australia pools have to have fences but maybe that’s only if you have kids. I’m not sure and I’m not a pool owner.

    1. It’s law in Australia and here we have to have a fenced in property.

  6. I can’t decide if your dogs are lucky or just hapless. I guess they wouldn’t drown, though.

    There are tons of ways to use chickpeas in salads — yours is appealing. I haven’t tried them with mayo, usually use oil because I think of them as Middle Eastern.

    1. They could drown if they get trapped which always worries me 🙂

  8. I would have loved a pool lately in this hot weather we have been experiencing in South Australia!
    It is cooler today, and a refreshing change.

    Your chickpea salad sounds delicious – I love the idea of the curry flavour. One to try soon.
