I have always been a fan of Indian spices and chana masala definitely combines the amazing taste of them.
Garam masala, cumin, turmeric, coriander make a perfect combination, their smell entangles you once you add them to the pot. I made that dish over the weekend and it makes my lunch today as well.
Here are the ingredients:
- 2 red onions chopped
- 1 small piece of ginger nicely chopped
- 1 can of chickpeas ( drained)
- 1 zucchini chopped
- 1 tin of coconut milk
- 100 g of three colour quinoa
- 2 tbsp of sunflower oil
- spices: * 1 tsp of cumin, * 1 tsp of coriander, *1tsp of paprika, *2tsp of garam masala, *2 tsp of turmeric, some fresh pepper and salt to your liking
Boil quinoa and put it aside.
Heat one tablespoon of oil and put the chopped onions and ginger in a pot. Once the onions start to be getting golden, add all spices and fry it for 3 minutes.
Add chopped zucchini, chickpeas and coconut milk and boil it for ten minutes. Add boiled quinoa. Let all the ingredients soak in that flavor. Above spice with coconut create a very aromatic smell and they always make me eat straight from the pot, once the dish is done. I can hardly ever wait.
I like to have chana masala with some raita on the side.
