Recipe: Chana Masala

Posted for CJ

And for future reference for myself as well. FYI I doubled the spices. This one is very fast & easy.


 

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpeas in water (also called garbanzo beans) or 1 1/2 cups precooked + 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 cloved garlic, diced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • juice from one lemon, (approx 2 tbsp )
  • 1/2 tsp cury powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 large bunch of spinach or two handfuls, rinsed

Preparation:

In a large skillet or frying pan, sautee onions and garlic in olive oil until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add chickpeas straight from the can, including all the water. Add spices and lemon juice, cover, and simmer about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding more water if needed, until chickpeas are cooked and soft.
Reduce heat, add spinach and cover. Allow spinach to wilt for 2-4 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy your chana masala!
