    evelyn/athens's Note:

    Chickpeas are so good done in this simple pilaf. This is 'wetter' than a regular pilaf as this type of cooking in Greece closely resembles a risotto.

      The combination of chickpeas and rice is really great and makes form this dish an fullmeal dish.
      I reduced the water to cups as I had to prepare in advance the dish and pick up a friend and could not be serve immediately.
      Instead of tomato puree I used a 1/2 tin of pitted tomatoes.
      As I'm using isolated pots (keeps warm for hours!) next time I will reduce the water to 1 1/2 cup and add at the last moment some more hot water if necessary.
      Thanks a lot for this easy and delicious dish!
