Let’s start off easy…

Welcome to my first week blogging about my adventure cooking different foods I’ve never tried before. I wanted to start off easy and not overdo it to lean myself into bigger challenges (Baby Steps!) I’ve lately been craving Indian food so I took this as a perfect opportunity to find a simple and delicious recipe to share with you guys today. I decided to make Chana Masala (Savory Indian Chick Peas) It didn’t seem too difficult to make and the ingredients to make this dish were minimal. The only thing is I had to buy a lot of different spices because I didn’t have them in my kitchen…so be ready to invest in some spices when you make this. Another thing is the recipe called for garam masala powder and I searched high and low to find this spice and could not find it anywhere, I’ll have to probably order this online. Thankfully Google came to the rescue and told me to use allspice and cumin as an alternative. This recipe was actually so easy and fun to make that I’m glad that I did this for my first blog. I hope you stick around to see the photos at the end of this blog to see how amazing this turned out! This turned out better than expected and I’m shocked how great this recipe was to make. I think the next time I make this I defiantly have to do chicken with it. I’m so excited that I now know a little bit more about cooking Indian food. This recipe really told me a lot about how they cook food they add so many spices it makes the flavor amazing. Typically if I’m cooking a meal I won’t use any more than a couple of spices, this recipe I feel like there was a lot of spices going into this. Before anyone asks this recipe was not that spicy at all it was actually pretty mild to me. This recipe will defiantly be made again because it was truly easy and delicious. Have any of you tried Indian cooking at home? This was my first time and it defiantly won’t be the last, I love Indian food and have only had it at Indian restaurants. I hope everyone enjoys!

      1. My mother-in-law has all kinds of ideas for substitutions when we don’t have something on hand. One time we made Mint Chutney, and it was so bitter. She told us to grind in some peanuts, which made it taste so much better.


  1. Just from the pictures, this looked pretty simple to make. I’ve only had Indian cuisine once, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The cook, also, didn’t put all the spices in so we could handle it haha. I look forward to seeing more of your cooking from around the world.


  2. That sure looks like one good meal! I’ve not had Indian food before, so I can’t relate to the taste of it. Is there anything that you wish you would have done different, or any other tweaks, aside from making it with chicken, that you think you might do?
