Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic, ginger, and green chile pepper in hot oil until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.

  • Season onion mixture with cumin, paprika, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, and cayenne pepper; stir. Cook onion with spices until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, and tomato sauce; stir and simmer until the tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir yogurt into the mixture until the color of the mixture is even; simmer until again hot, about 5 minutes more. Remove pan from heat; stir lemon juice and salt into the mixture.

Cook's Note:

You may want to add more than one green chile pepper if you like to have things very spicy. I generally use 2 jalapenos for this recipe.

One of the best homemade Indian recipes I have tried. I followed the recipe almost exactly except that I 1) used canned green chiles because I forgot to buy a fresh one 2) added fresh cilantro at the end (along with the lemon juice). Served with jasmine rice and oven roasted cauliflower. Hubs liked it and so did the kids! Read More

Seriously yum! And simple to make. I used canned diced tomatoes, but other than that made it as described. Read More

This was a good recipe. I omitted the yogurt and it was still very good. Read More

Excellent! I was making tandoori chicken & wanted to make an Indian side dish to compliment. I happened to have all the ingredients (except the jalapeño, so made a quick run to the store) and was able to put this together for dinner tonight. It was better than the chicken. I have to admit that I used canned garbanzo beans and canned stewed tomatoes, but it was still soooo good! I only used 1 jalapeño, but we love spice so will use 2 next time. Topped with cilantro and also had jasmine rice and naans, but the Chana masala was the star of the show. Read More

So so so good. Finally a recipe that matched the taste of a local restaurant’s channa masala that sadly closed down. I used (2) Serrano peppers and 3/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to bump up the heat. Also added fresh chopped cilantro at the end into the mix and then as a garnish. Will for sure be making this again. Read More
