Roasted Curried Chickpeas

I did say I was going to be back with other roasted bean recipes, since I really like them for a salty snack fix and they are so quick and easy. And quick and easy is the theme of the week, because I have been moving house (hence the absence from blogging! No kitchen!) which…
