Chana Masala

Chana Masala

Sarah

"This version of chana masala uses spinach instead of tomatoes, like my favorite Indian restaurant makes. It is so easy to throw together, and pretty healthy to boot! A perfect meal on a cold winter night when served with naan and basmati rice."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; saute onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Stir chickpeas with liquid from can, lemon juice, coriander, cumin, garam masala, and curry powder into onion mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until liquid is mostly evaporated and sauce is thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Stir spinach into sauce and simmer until wilted, about 5 more minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You may add more water as desired (and depending on how much water is retained from the spinach) to suit the sauce to your tastes.
  • You can use 1/4 block frozen spinach, thawed and drained, instead of fresh if desired.

Easy, full of vegan protein and tasty! My teenage son said, "See, Mom, you should cook more often!" I didn't have coriander so simply omitted it. This will definitely be a regular side dish from...

Technically your version is Chana Palak. Palak meaning Spinach. Chana, meaning chickpea, or Garbanzos. A good dish overall!

I thought this recipe was terrible. There was no sauce to it and the spices were not flavorful- had too much of a tart flavor. This is the second Chana Masala recipe I have tried and I will ke...

I bought more chickpeas 3 days later so that I could make this again. The only problem is I wanted more of it. So good and a balanced recipe. I used Ghee instead of oil & only 1 tablespoon of le...

I didn't think it tasted much like the Chana Masala I am used to, but it was pretty darn tasty. And so easy! I'll probably play around with the spices a bit in the future, but a great base rec...
