    2      Cups          Chickpeas -- cooked
      1/2  Pound         Green Beans
                         -----Dressing For Chickpeas-----
      1/3  Cup           Oil
      1/4  Cup           Wine Vinegar
      1/4  Teaspoon      Salt
    1      Teaspoon      Garam Masala
    2      Cloves        Garlic -- crushed
      1/8  Teaspoon      Cayenne
                         -----Dressing For Beans-----
      1/4  Cup           Oil
    2      Tablespoons   Lemon Juice
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
      1/2  Teaspoon      Garam Masala

    1      Teaspoon      Fresh Ginger Root -- grated
 Heat chickpeas in their liquid and drain. Place in a bowl. Combine all
 ingredients for chickpea dressing and pour over chickpeas while they
 are still warm. Mix well. Cool, cover and set aside. Combine all
 ingredients for green bean dressing. Wash and trim beans, and cut
 into 3/4-inch long pieces. Steam or boil beans until just tender. Drain
 thoroughly. Shake them in a colander until they look very dry. Put
 beans in a separate bowl from chickpeas and pour bean dressing over
 them. Let sit for 5 minutes. Combine the two beans and mix well. It’s
 best to let the chickpeas sit in their dressing for several hours
 before mixing them with the green beans so the chickpeas can absorb
 the flavors. Serve cold or at room temperature.
