The other day I found myself browsing our recipe archives for one of my favourite quickie meals, chana masala.
Guys. There’s no chana masala recipe!
What. the hell.
I couldn’t believe it, it’s truly a staple at our house. All of the ingredients are always stocked in my pantry, it takes less than 30 minutes to get on the table and it’s a really flipping delicious healthy main.
Basically, it’s got How to Eat written all over it. So we made a video!
A good chana can be as easy or as complicated as you like. No recipe I’ve found is ever the same, other than they contain a tomato and chickpea base, and some aromatic flavours and spices.
This is a no-recipe kind of meal once you’ve made it a few times. While mine turns out slightly different each time, I’ve carefully measured the ingredients to give you an easy time of it for now.
Once you’ve got it, change it to your liking and add a little ‘you’.
