To prepare the Chana Masala (chickpeas in spicy tomato sauce) recipe, please follow these instructions:

Chana Masala is chickpeas in a spicy tomato sauce. Delicious fried meat accessories, but can also be eaten as self-sufficient

Leave the chickpeas to soften overnight. Alternatively, a can of chopped chickpeas can be used.

Heat the oil and sprinkle the bowl. Leave it sew for 5-10 seconds. Turn down the heat and add garlic and ginger. Sauté 2 minutes.

Add 1 dl of water, mangochutney, lemon or lime juice, finely chopped pepper, half of the tomato paste, turmeric, stewed cumin, stewed cilantro and paprika. Lay the lid on and stir in between until the sauce thickens. It takes about 5-10 minutes.

Pour the rest of the water together with chickpeas, fresh coriander, chili, spinach and salt. Stir around and simmer for about 45-50 minutes. Add the rest of the tomato purée about halfway through the cooking to end with a nice thick sauce. The chickpeas must be soft but retain their shape.

Served with finely chopped red onion and fresh coriander sprinkled on top.

If you use chickpeas from canned, you should reduce the cooking time to about 25 minutes.
