   Soak the chickpeas overnight in water to cover. (Or use the quick-soaking
   method.) Drain and add water to cover to a depth of 1*". Add salt and
   simmer two hours or longer, until the chickpeas are tender.
   
   Meanwhile, heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onions and cook until
   wilted. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, water and spices. Add the chickpeas
   and simmer 30 minutes longer. Serve hot over rice, garnished with onion
   rings and coriander.
