Chana Masala

Chana Masala

I love to cook Indian Food. There is nothing like the aroma of delicious spices wafting through the house (who am I kidding, apartment). 

This chana masala recipe is very simple to make. I don't like to measure my spices and find myself adding a dash of cumin here and a sprinkle of turmeric there as I see needed. Have fun and add as much or as little spice as you like! 


•1 can chickpeas, drained

•1 onion, finely chopped

•1 large tomato, finely chopped 

• 1 inch ginger, minced 

•3 cloves garlic, minced 

•1 tsp ground cumin

•1 tsp ground coriander 

•1/2 tsp turmeric

•2 tsp garam masala powder 

•2 green chilies, minced 

•2 tbsp olive oil

•1 cup water
