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!

*sigh*

Can't do spinach again until I'm off the Coumadin. Rats.

And channa masala and whatever the spinach/cheese thing is are two of my favorites.

Palak Paneer.

Hitchhiker's version is VERY good. So is this one for the Chana Masala. Joe liked it even though it was meatless. =)
