"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."

extra-virgin olive oil
1 (15 ounce) can
chickpeas (garbanzo beans), undrained
fresh spinach, or to taste
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 now on.
Technically your version is Chana Palak. Palak meaning Spinach. Chana, meaning chickpea, or Garbanzos. A good dish overall!
I did not care for this recipe, but my husband said he'd eat it. We eat a lot of indian type food. This is the first 'flop' I've made.
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 keep looking.
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 lemon juice.
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 recipe.
