Quick Chana Masala

Quick Chana Masala

Chana masala is one of my favorite menu items at Indian restaurants. It’s a hearty, saucy chickpea and tomato dish with warming spices. I bet you have the ingredients to make this easy homemade version in your pantry already!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked brown basmati rice, for serving (rice is optional, I like to cook extra to have on hand for other meals)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 medium serrano or jalapeño pepper*, minced (remove ribs and seeds to tame the spice level)
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt, to taste
  • 5 cloves garlic, pressed or minced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger (about a 1-inch piece)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garam masala**
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional!*)
  • 1 large can (28 ounces) fire-roasted crushed tomatoes or whole peeled tomatoes, with their juices
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) chickpeas (or 3 cups cooked chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • Lemon wedges, for garnish
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish (optional)
