Chana masala Of course there are a lot of chana masala recipes out there that are perfectly good, but this is my favorite way to make it. Simple, yet robust and oil-free! It is high-protein, plant-based and made from a spicy chickpea base. Goes very well with your favorite flatbreads and grains. What’s not to love?
