Chana Masala

Chana Masala

What a flavoursome dish! If you love spicy food, you must give it a go with this vegetarian dish. The chickpeas really take on all the flavours and tastes really delicious. You can serve this dish with chapatti, batura, paratha or just simple boiled rice!

Serves 2

Ingredients

  1. 1 ½ tbsp Oil
  2. 1 Onion- Finely Chopped
  3. 2 Cloves Garlic- Finely Chopped
  4. 2tsp Ginger Paste
  5. 1 Large Handful Fenugreek/Methi – Chopped

  11. ½ Cup Water
  12. 1tsp Turmeric
  13. 1tsp Chilli Powder

Method

Take a wide bottomed pan and add the oil. Add the onions and cook until golden brown. Add the garlic, green chillies and ginger.  Give it a stir and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the chana masala powder and again stir for a few minutes; this will get rid of the strong flavour and also the powder texture. It is very important that you add it in add this stage. Add the fenugreek and again cook for a few minutes. Pour the blended tomatoes in along with the water and add the chickpeas. Give it a stir. Add the turmeric, red chilli powder and salt. Cook on a low heat for 25 minutes. Lastly, add the peppers and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Check for salt.
