Heat oil in large saucepan and sauté onion and garlic until translucent.
Add tomato paste and cook another 2 minutes then add the Turkish Baharat and cayenne pepper.
After about 30 seconds, add crushed tomatoes, potatoes and water, ensuring liquid covers
the potatoes completely.
Mix well and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender.
Stir in the chickpeas and simmer for another 10 minutes.
