This has to be one of my favourite dishes to order when I order out Indian food. I must admit, every place that I've enjoyed it, it's been unique to the last place I tried, which implies to me that everyone has their own interpretation of what chana masala is all about. This also means, I can slide in with my own version for y'all to try!
Chana Masala is a dish of chickpeas cooked down in a robustly seasoned tomato sauce. The sauce is typically served over rice or can be enjoyed as a stand alone dish. Full of flavours from contributing spices such as cumin, chili, coriander, cardamom, clove, and nutmeg, this chana permeates the air and invokes hunger in a way other dishes can't. There's something about the smell of Indian food that always gets my stomach going and my chana masala is no different! Ready your noses and stomachs people, chana masala is on the menu!
