I hadn't realized that every single recipe I had made so far has included some sort of meat in it, which, coming from indian cuisine, I didn't really expect at all...
Anyhow, this week I decided on making a Chana Masala! A recipe I've been eyeing out for some time, it doesn't actually come from the curry cookbook I had been using so far ! It came from a Binging With Babish video, which he uploaded not long ago. Honestly, I've always been such a big fan of chickpeas, which makes me wonder why I didn't make this recipe any sooner :P. The recipe is real simple; crushed tomatoes, spices, onion, and chickpeas! A very simple dish to make, it resembles a lot of the other 'weeknight curries' I've made, which might be a big reason why I love it so much ahahhaha. It feels so rewarding to make a really nice dish out of practically entirely canned ingredients, it's incredible really ! In times where it seems like everyone is stockpiling food, it's nice to have something relatively shelf stable and reliable to have in one's pantry, and something like garbanzo beans really are something of a hearty meal that I'd love to enjoy more of :)
Side note, this is the first time I try making Basmati rice with the starches sifted, which ended up making for some real tasty rice :P definitely recommend, it makes for a better side dish !!!
