Channa Masala is a delicious budget-friendly recipe. Channa is also referred to as Chickpeas or Garbanzo Beans.

Channa Masala is a famous dish all the way from India. Channa (Chickpeas) Masala is a side dish that goes with Indian bread, white bread, wholemeal bread or any other bread variety. Channa Masala also tastes great mixed with white rice or brown rice.

Channa (Chickpeas) are good for health. They are rich in fiber and have a low Glycemic Index. Chickpeas are both healthy and budget-friendly.

Garam Masala Powder and Channa Masala Powder that I have used in this recipe will be available in any Indian store.
