"I had some leftover bread that has a short shelf-life. So, I guess this spicy recipe goes well with it. Decided to add sweet potato to the original chana masala, as I didn't want that to go to waste, too. And it tasted good!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I was actually searching for a recipe to use up an abundance of leftover baked sweet potatoes. I started cooking it a little backwards because i didn't have all of the ingredients and I needed something quick and healthy. Started with a can of diced tomatoes and added the spices listed. I used onion powder and a roasted garlic paste I had previously made and keep frozen. Added 2 very large baked sweets and a drained can of chick peas. The spices made the dish! Great flavor; hot but not overly so. I would have loved to try it over rice or have it with chicken but i had a bowl of it topped with a slightly sweetened plain Greek yogurt. This is a very versatile recipe I will come back to often! Fantastic! Thank you!
i added zucchini and tomato and doubled the spices. The recipe as is was very bland but a good base to build on.
I have made this recipe twice now, with and without the tomatoes. This is a very good side dish with Curry Stand Chicken Masala or just over rice on its own. Very easy. My guest loved it. Last night a added 1 seeded and chopped jalepeno pepper to kick it up. The pepper also added some color.
Great with Naan! :)
Fantastic! I followed this recipe exactly and it came out to a PERFECT consistency with plenty of flavors! I highly recommend this recipe paired with Tandoori Chicken II and a side of Indian Style Basmati Rice (both on the website). Thanks OP, this dish was welcomed very well by the family!
So disappointing! This sounded so tasty and it was completely void of flavor. I added the chili powder and basically it was just flavorless, but hot. I really wanted this to be good, but it wasn't.
Followed the recipe except only one large sweet potato and a cup of peas. Excellent and very healthy. I only used 1/2 Tbsp. Oil and no butter. Didn't miss the extra fat at all. Flavorful...a keeper.
