Channa masala is one of my favourite Indian foods. I ate it during my Indian food challenege. I also ate it during my Athlean X food challenge. Safe to say it’s my go to Indian meal. This version of mine is pretty easy to make even though I use a good amount of spices to get the best flavour. I’ve mainly added the paneer to this to pack in some more protein. This would specifically be good for vegetarians. I think meat eaters don’t have an issue getting in a good amount of protein through their other meals. I’ve also kept the fat fairly low but it can be lowered even more though I prefer to have a bit of good fat because fat is flavour. Ghee is my preferred cooking fat for Indian food.
Anyway enough jibber jabber. Enjoy!
Nutrition Info (Per serving)
This recipe makes 6 servings. Get this recipe on myfitnesspal. For starters these are very small servings of about 100g-120g. You will need to weigh the channa after it’s cooked and then divide by 6. Also this doesn’t include the paneer because I am not sure what paneer you will use and I also recommend weighing it separately to know exactly how much you are eating. Paneer will add more protein to these macros. As you can see channa always has way more carbs than protein.
