Chana Masala (Savory Indian Chick Peas)
June 08, 2015

I prepared this recipe a little differently than indicated, but thought it was a great tasting dish. I had no garam masala; so I found a recipe here on All Recipes and used it. That made the recipe a little more time-consuming. Basically, I heated the olive oil in a pan and added the onions and then remembered the bay leaf...then I prepared as indicated adding fresh tomatoes, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and the garam masala. Then I added in some chickpeas in their juice I had previously made and served it over jasmine rice. Important note, at first it was bitter, however, when I added the tumeric it toned it down. Next time I will increase my tomatoes or used canned. Also, as it was very spicy with the chili I will add in carrots or sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing this lovely dish.
