Chana Masala

This dish tends to be very oily and rich when ordered at a typical Indian restaurant. For this recipe, I have taken out the oil and used a bit of coconut milk. This dish is even better as leftovers because the flavors become more intense the longer it cooks or sits.


Prep time    15 minutes  

Cook time   30 minutes    

Yield               4 servings


  • 1 onion, diced
