Channa Masala

I tasted this for the 1st time while traveling in India.  I was amazed at how flavourful their vegetarian dishes are!Yum

Needed:

Pot, Olive oil, 1 Onion, 3 chopped tomatoes, 2 cans chopped tomatoes, 3 cans chickpeas

garlic, ginger, pepper, coriander, cumin, turmeric, Raj curry powder, lemon juice

Heat oil in Pot. Add onion, garlic, ginger and pepper and sauté over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes.

Turn heat down to medium-low and add the cans of tomatoes, chopped tomatoes, coriander, cumin, cayenne, turmeric and curry powder(1 teaspoon). Cook mixture with spices for about 5 minutes.

Add chickpeas, Allow to simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.Add 1 teaspoon lemon juice and mix.

Serve with Naan bread or rice.  For a healthy alternative I like to serve it with brown rice.

To make this extra tastey serve with chopped banana in greek yoghurt.(Marc calls this “banatziki”)
