(For more recipes from Herbavoricious go to www.herbivoracious.com)
While this classic Indian staple can be found in any Indian restaurant, homemade chana masala (spicy chickpeas) is much more vibrant and fresh. Michael Natkin behind Herbivoracious brings us this simple, 20-minute recipe via video. Watch as he fries up some tomatoes, onion, garlic, and chickpeas, then tempers the batch for a final pop of flavor.
Natkin tosses in mushrooms for textural contrast, and while you can substitute any vegetable you prefer, check out his recipe over on Herbivoracious.com. Serve this dish with basmati rice, top with cilantro for garnish, and you've got dinner in 20 minutes.
