Busy weekdays call for dinners that are quick, easy and delicious.
This Chana Masala is just one of those meals…
Otherwise known as Savory Indian Chickpeas, this super simple dish is packed with flavor, comes together quickly and heats up well.
Recipe adapted from Eating Well, this vegetarian Indian recipe is just a few main ingredients plus lots of spices — which makes it flavorful but not spicy!
All you’ll need is canned chickpeas, a serano or jalapeno pepper, canned diced tomatoes, garlic, ginger and lots of yummy spices like cumin, coriander, turmeric and garam masala.
And it comes together really quickly!
You just saute the pepper, garlic, ginger and onions till tender, about 3-5 minutes. Then you stir in some spices and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes including juices with salt and simmer 4 minutes. Add the chickpeas and garam marsala and simmer an additional 5 minutes and you are ready to serve!
We paired with rice and a side of steamed broccoli which nicely balances the flavorful chickpeas.
And the broccoli steams for just 3-5 minutes while the chickpeas cook, so the entire meal comes together quickly.
Super quick and easy, the entire meal took less than 30 minutes beginning to end and is nourishing, flavorful and cozy!
Hope you love it as much as we do!
