Does anyone have a recipe for this?

Basically ground chicken or meat (not sure which) with chickpeas cooked in a broth of some sort.

I tried to ask the peson who made them, but the language barrier made it a bit difficult for me to get.

I think you're referring to Ghondi.

Here's one recipe:

For the broth:
10 cups water
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp chicken or onion powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 zucchinis, washed and cut into 1 inch chunks
1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

for the meatballs:
2 pounds ground beef, chicken or turkey
1 onion, liquified
1/2 cup chickpea flour (if using turkey, substitute 1 cup instead)
2 eggs
2 tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp cardamom powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

in saucepan bring water, salt, consomme powder and turmeric to a boil.

meanwhile mix all meatball ingredients together, drop in meatballs the size of golf balls. bring water to boil again and add zucchini and chickpeas. cover and simmer 45 min.
