Chana Masala

This is probably my favourite curry recipe. It’s so simple but so packed with flavour. I absolute love chickpeas, they are probably my favourite legume and it works so well with in this recipe as they absorb all the gorgeous spices. I love serving it with lots of fresh coriander and brown rice.
