Spicy Chana Masala

Spicy Chana Masala
Spicy Chana Masala

"A popular spicy, tangy, and protein-packed Indian dish. One of my favorite Indian curry dishes is homemade Chana Masala. It is a popular spiced chickpea dish that can be found at all Indian restaurants in many variations. Chickpeas are all the rave these days but this particular ingredient has been most commonly used in South Asian cooking as either a thickening or binding agent for years back. I personally think the perfect Chana Masala recipe relies on how the chickpeas are cooked. In this recipe, you will note the chana (chickpeas) is cooked well. Overcooked to be precise."
