I recently got back from a trip to visit my college-age daughter, and like most moms, I left her with a lot more food than she had when I arrived! As a busy student, she often doesn’t have time to prep meals or spend long afternoons in the kitchen. I wanted to leave her with a full fridge and ideas for future meals she could make in a matter of minutes. At her request, the first dish I made this week was Chana Masala. After a few successful taste tests, I’m now sharing that recipe with you!
At AH, we’re always looking for ways to add slow carbohydrates to our meals, and chickpeas are a popular choice. These versatile legumes hold up well to cooking and are a great vessel for a wide variety of seasonings. Chana Masala is a quick and easy dish to prepare. It’s also easy to cook up a large batch and save for leftovers in the freezer. Add variety to the dish by serving it with chicken or tofu, or with a side of yogurt or sour cream.
