Chana Masala is basically a chickpea tomato stew cooked with onion and a combination of fresh and dried spices. This version of chana masala is very simple and easy to make and done within 25 minutes. It tastes best if it’s served over rice but can be enjoyed by itself as well. You can also choose any other grain (eg. farro, quinoa, …) to go with it and make it a healthy and well balanced meal.
