Indian food can be quite intimidating to cook. It often involves a smorgasbord of difficult-to-pronounce spices and lengthy preparation and cooking times. Chana Masala is one of my favorite dishes, and it is especially comforting on a chilly winter day. My spirits were lifted when I found this recipe for vegan chana masala in The Oh She Glows Cookbook. You can also find the recipe online at Cookie and Kate. Angela from Oh She Glows has totally simplified the process and time involved in chana masala, and even ensured that the recipe is vegan and gluten free! At first glance the recipe looks very long with a lot of ingredients, but don’t fret. Most of the spices can be found in your pantry, and the dish is primarily composed of chickpeas, tomatoes, yellow onion, and basmati rice. This is the perfect recipe for anyone who is hesitant to try cooking Indian food for the first time, and is the perfect comfort food that you can save in the fridge for the whole week.
