smitten kitchen masala

I have almost all the spices and a bag of dried chick peas in the pantry. Who knew? Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. (To each his own.) People, this is the BEST adult cake recipe out there! I cooked the garbanzos last night in the crock pot and drained and rinsed them this morning and put the masala together this afternoon to cook for 5 hours in the crock pot. This recipe is quick, easy and satisfies my craving for Indian food when I do not want to make the trek across the city for the real thing. I haven’t had the best luck cooking Indian food in the past, but this was definitely a winner. I also used butter instead of oil, as I think it goes well with Indian flavors. I can handle some spice but not way too much. Do you know how long I’ve been looking for a recipe for this??? It’s too bad because I think the spice mixture and all of the flavors would have tasted amazing, but our Serrano completely overpowered everything. 4 ounces (115 grams) mozzarella, cut into small cubes. I just made this last night and I cannot tell you how savory the aromas were and how DELICIOUS this curry was. Need your advice! I have made this recipe many, many times. Hi Deb, this is so wonderful! fenugreek seeds, cardamon pods, cumin seeds, whole cloves, cumin powder, cumin seeds, cinnamon sticks, probably some more…). Wow… what a wonderful recipe! I am not Indian and looking at the list of spices was instantly intimated. All my Indian family does this during the cold months when we don’t have access to a screaming hot outside grill. For a busy woman, this is definitely a go-to dish that will impress. The addition of one of my favorite flavors, anardana, adds a tangy punch to the nuttiness of chickpeas. Worked out great. I may add another serrano chile next time. Editing to add—I should have also said that DH #1 was a Scots. I actually took 1/2 the finished recipe and put it in an emersion blender and added it back to the pan. I am over the moon with excitement and I cannot wait to have this… Love, The girl with the 10 burner 2 stove Vulcan – I know you remember me – Haha! Dawn — I don’t have an answer for you, as I have no skills in the rice department, however I was JUST reading a post yesterday about how seriously perfectly cooked basmati rice is taken in Afghan cooking over on this new-to-me blog. My wife and I like spicy, but this was really spicy. I added the tea bag, as some commenters suggested. I LOVE Indian food but always struggle remember which dish I like most and why because I can’t figure out the differences from the simple descriptions in menus. I used half fresh tomatoes and half canned as again, that’s what I had. I also used 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes from Trader Joe’s which definitely kicks up the heat! Oh, Costco-quantities-of-chickpeas… you have something wonderful to look forward to! To serve I like to top Indian stews a small portion of the spices from the recipe that have been fried off in a tiny bit of oil. He ended up boiling it for 45 min. I’ll have to give this one a try! My batch actually had a bit of sweetness in the end. looks delicious! Been looking to make Chicken Tikka for a while! Seven years ago: Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls I made a fig batch and put it in the fridge, hoping that my family would heat it up and have some nice meals during the week. Just finished some leftovers for lunch and I am truly blissed out. Leftovers to get me through the work week now include this curry, and the sheet pan chicken tikka. I have my aunt to thank for this trick :) And when in doubt, cook on low, and if too watery, cook without a lid. @Adam: I make naan in my oven, using a pizza stone. Of course, the store is long gone and I just used the last up of it (I had to buy it by the pound!). I have failed miserably in my attempts to make Indian dishes, even with the assistance of a lovely couple who took the time to introduce me to amchur as a key component to their home cooking and proceeded to step me through the preparation of one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I do see garam masala so maybe it should be called chicken garam masala?? Wife and I didn’t leave anything on our plates! Even my 15 month old ate it, and that’s saying a lot. First time making Indian food. Why is that? Thank you! Takes it to whole ‘nother level. Also, served it with the indian spiced potatoes and cauliflower which was the perfect accompaniment. I‘ve made this often, always a win! I also recommend topping it with a splash of lemon juice and some cut up raw onions. Wheeee! You may or may not know that Indian food to Scots is like Chinese food to the US—there’s a curry shop on every corner and a curry take-away is at least a once weekly thing in many/most urban areas. Patak Paneer’s on the menu for tomorrow night, now I’m thinking a little double date with some Chana Masala. Thanks Deb! My MIL does the cumin seeds with her onions and my fam does ground cumin in the “masala” stage. I’m trying to figure out the best way to change the dish name without breaking any links or confusing anyone looking for the dish that was here Monday called tikka masala… look out for the change in the next day. Chickpeas + Tomatoes + Magical Spice Combination = YUM! Prue Leith is fab. As usual, your photography is outstanding. I always feel full but not weighted down after I finish a meal like this. This recipe is very good and it makes me so happy to see Chetna from GBBO getting more attention since I think her Youtube channel is criminally underwatched! Hey I tried the recipe for the chana masala had some friends round to test it also they loved it with a few beers and nan breads and popadoms thank you. Make a nice raita, some rice and you’re set. This recipe also works well if you add chicken breasts chopped into chunks. I lurrve me some channa masala, but strangely enough, have never thought of making it..till now. My fresh tomatoes were lackluster so I added a squeeze of ketchup as another blogger recommended. I have a question that may seem ridiculous. 1 1/2 cups (355 ml) stock or broth (chicken, vegetable or mushroom) 1/2 cup (50 grams) finely grated parmesan cheese. Not entirely sure — I suppose it’s that some chicken is pumped with more water than others? I recently moved from California where we had every type of restaurant possible in my town to Michigan where we have well, Buffalo Wild Wings and Applebees. I’ve been making Madhur Jaffrey’s Very Spicy Delicious Chickpeas for decades, and always add half the recommended chickpeas (so, increasing the tomato ratio, like you). Given where I’m at, I had to make some small changes, but it was incredible. Twice. I made mine extra hot and increased the tomatoes and spices. I rarely ever leave comments, but I had to for this recipe because it’s JUST. To me the best part is seeing my husband eat vegetarian dishes without complaining and even being happy about it! Only adjustment I made was I swapped out the lemon juice for a bit of tamarind paste. I made this last week and could not get over how EASY it was to pull together. THANK You, OBSESSED WITH YOUR SITE :). On top of that they include swearing – nothing major but I liked watching that show with my kids. Tikka, curry, sauce, gravy – does it really matter that much? Made it tonight and it was fantastic!! Haha, ‘curry’ is such a British thing that chicken tikka masala is considered by many to be Britain’s national dish! I made this last night from an old recipe from Food52 that I had saved. Do you have any advice on how to get my basmati rice to turn out so perfectly as it does in restaurants? And I love Chana Masala. I’m already making my list of dinners for next week and this just shot to the top of the list. I was committed to their Malai Kofta, with a stroll to Graeter’s for dessert. I should have expected it.Thanks very much. Anything that you cook the chicken in a sauce directly is a curry! I have recently been craving chana masala. Love the backstory. xx. I loved this recipe. It adds a whole new dimension to it. 2. Yes! Thanks for posting this! I found amchoor powder at the halal store so I used that. I thought it tasted a bit too cumin-y, so I might just go for a 1/4 tsp next time. This is not chicken tikka masala nor a proper butter chicken. Thank you! It looks like a lot of spices. About how much do you use, on average, Deb? And THANK YOU for writing that little note about the amchoor powder – I’m extremely allergic to mango, and would have used it without knowing! She and my dad LOVED it. Write. Just asking to be underwhelmed. Here is the recipe for tomato sauce, this is great! Called ‘doubles’ in Trinidad – I am addicted! I happened to have some mango chutney in the back of the fridge, and I served it alongside the chickpeas. This looks great! I found some amchoor but not the powder kind. I mashed a few chickpeas at the end to thicken the sauce, added a touch of sugar and topped it with some chopped parsley….I was out of fresh cilantro! It was wonderful! This version is cooked with a ton of ginger, the usual spices and no tomatoes. Any dessert suggestions to pair with Indian? YUM!! I accidentally doubled the ginger – didn’t see the “divided” part of the instructions – and I’m glad I did since I really like ginger. Thanks so much for the flavorful, vegan recipe! The tea-leaves impart a crazy-good earthy flavor to the chana! The dish came out watery and thin – not the thick and luxurious dish you have in the photo. I’m fully converted. I followed the recipe almost all the way through – browning the onions, adding the spices, and then adding the tomatoes (I used 2 cups fresh romas with about 1/2 cup tomato sauce). This dish was a huge hit in our house! This was delicious! So maybe next time I won’t marinate the tofu and I’ll add it in after I cook and blend the sauce. To be honest, the turmeric, ginger, corriander and garlic are the prominent flavours here. A power user tip is to add some tea leaves (any normal tea leaf, such as Ceylon, orange pekoe, whatever) and some dried “amla” (Indian gooseberry – available at any ethnic Indian store) in a little cheesecloth pouch and put it in the pot while boiling the soaked chickpeas. Would rather have cooked the chickpeas for longer… though I often am convinced that legumes ought to be more tender than they are. Discovered an Indian market that is on my way home from work. This was a good rendition, but the paprika was overpowering. Does anyone have some serving suggestions? I keep cans of chickpeas in the pantry just for this recipe. or just leave it out? @Ariana (#174): I got about 4 hearty servings of chana masala and rice – dinner for two last night, plus lunch today. Absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for this information. Overall, a huge hit for our family! I served it with coconut rice (which, if you haven’t tried it yet, you MUST! I didn’t have amchoor so I used extra lemon like you suggested, and the tang really offsets the heat from the pepper and cayenne nicely. I did put the chicken/yogurt mixture in cold after 24 hrs. It isn’t quite as sour as “real” tamarind but you can add it to taste once the dish is cooked. I cannot believe its been a year since: One year ago: Chocolate Whiskey and Beer Cupcakes I’ve made these so many times, sometimes as a layer cake and they have never failed to impress. Then I eat my chana with TONS of mango pickle and wrap it up in aloo paratha. And it seemed to make much more than 4-6 servings (which normally would thrill me). Chana Masala is the first Indian dish I tasted (at the tender age of 21) and I fell madly in love. What I heard was: Seek out the correct dish name, not the one that might be used to explain the dish to an audience that may not know Indian cuisine well. You add it. I have been a fan since I peeled chick peas for your hummus. *happy dance*. But, for others, just trust the recipe and the amount of water, a lot of water is released as you simmer (especially given you simmer with the top on). How do you cook your rice? I am indian and really am not a chana masala fan, never really have been but this looks really good! I only have ground cumin. Don’t ever buy the frozen chana masala from Trader Joe’s, it’ll only piss you off that you wasted your money. You added cumin twice. Had I not fiddled with this recipe, it would have looked nothing like Deb’s photo. Love the website and I look forward to every new post, keep it up! Yum!! Adapted from a Madhur Jaffrey recipe, which was adapted over here because much to my frustration, I own two Madhur Jaffrey books and this is in neither. Even if you buy a container of “curry powder” it lists the ingredients and you can plainly see that there is no one spice called “curry.”. Haven’t tried this in a slow-cooker but have done other chickpea dishes there and it’s worked well. I used full fat yogurt and marinated the chicken overnight. I also blended the gravy before adding the chickpeas- just a texture thing. of ground cumin, and 2 tsp. All I can say is DO IT! Thanks! I didn’t know if it would affect the taste or if it would help. I’ve got everything but the chicken in the house. Many! I’m watching my WW points carefully, so I used chicken breast, 0% Fage yogurt, added a cut up head of cauliflower alongside the chicken and doubled the rest of the ingredients.
