    Chop it all up and throw it into a hotpot for a few hours, once cooked then stir through the yoghurt, eggs and tomato paste.

    First, do away with the tomato paste. Cook up the spuds and garbanzos until soft. Braise the chcken, cooked through. If you have the equipment - blend all cooked off ingredients and seasonings with your eggs {binder} in a good blender or robo coupe. You have the makings of a potato/chicken/chick pea cake. Form individual patties, cooked through. A yogurt dressing will compliment the cakes.

    Curry powder would blow it wide open.

    If you had some rice and curry powder you could make an ersatz curry.

    Season the chicken with curry, salt and pepper. Saute chopped onion, add chopped up chicken. After its cooked, remove chicken from pan. Add tomato paste and some water to pan. Add the chopped potato and chick peas. Cook until soft and liquid reduced. Season with more curry to taste. Add back the chicken and cook until tender. Add the yoghurt. Garnish with chopped coriander and serve with rice.

    Save the eggs for an omelet.

    Could go for a youguty curry dish.

    Perhaps a dal with chick peas not lentels, tomato paste might go with that.
    Perhaps a more trad curry with toms, mint in the yogeut as a garnish.
    Or chicken and mash.

    Chop and fry the chicken, onion, and potatoes together with a bit of tomato paste and herbs. Whip up the eggs and make a big omelet stuffed with chicken, onion, potatoes and tomato paste mixture. Top with yogurt and herbs.

    Curry, if ya get some powder.

    Chicken kebab with french fries, get a sort of hummus going on with the chick peas.

    Almost the same. I would marinate the chicken in yoghurt and chili. Grill it and then at the end drop it in with the potatoes, chick peas and onions.

    ...erm, yuk to all. What if it's sweet yoghurt?
    I'd boil the spuds, rinse in cold water and slice. Season (like what have you got? S&P, maybe cumin or parsley?) and bash the chook. If the pieces are thin, fry up fast and fry the potato slices for fries. Run to 7-11 for ketchup packs. Pick some mangoes or something and mix with the yoghurt for dessert. Save the eggs for breakkie.

    ^ Sadly, the season's over. Froze some, but didn't do it right, so they clumped together.

    Well said Mate.

    The ingredients did bring up a recipe in my mind, and ketchup wasn't in there. Though it is always tasty on cooked potatoes.
