I still remember the first time I tried chana masala, it was like an explosion of flavour in my mouth that I had never experienced. Indian food is reputably some of the most fragrant and recognizable cuisines out there. Full of spices like coriander, cardamom, clove, and cumin, there's no denying the intense fragrance of the cuisine.
I've whipped up my own chana masala for you guys and I think you will experience what I first experienced with it. Basically, chana masala is a tomato like stew full of spices and chickpeas which you can have mild to spicy depending on your taste. My version plays off of the traditional idea but still delivers a punch of exotic flavour. Trust me, you'll be hard pressed not to head back for seconds.

This has to be one of my favourite dishes to order when I order out Indian food. I must admit, every place that I've enjoyed it, it's been unique to the last place I tried, which implies to me that everyone has their own interpretation of what chana masala is all about. This also means, I can slide in with my own version for y'all to try!
Chana Masala is a dish of chickpeas cooked down in a robustly seasoned tomato sauce. The sauce is typically served over rice or can be enjoyed as a stand alone dish. Full of flavours from contributing spices such as cumin, chili, coriander, cardamom, clove, and nutmeg, this chana permeates the air and invokes hunger in a way other dishes can't. There's something about the smell of Indian food that always gets my stomach going and my chana masala is no different! Ready your noses and stomachs people, chana masala is on the menu!
CREAMY COCONUT CURRY GNOCCHI
I was craving curry and gnocchi at the same time, so naturally, I had to find a way to make that happen. That's where the inspiration for this recipe came from, cravings lol Cravings can be so strange and seem so mismatched, until you put them together and create something magical!
Tender gnocchi and cauliflower tossed in a delightfully rich and creamy coconut curry sauce. The sauce is full of robust spices that permeate the air as the sauce bubbles away, igniting hunger in even the most stubborn of people. Trust me when I say, this is one dish that you'll be adding to your recipe collection for sure!
