Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Channa Masala

Trader Joe’s Channa Masala

Tastes Like:  The perfect Channa Masala!  This favorite dish of mine can be SO hit-or-miss…sometimes it’s so mild it’s like it barely exists at all.  Other times, the spice is so overwhelming that the flavor (and enjoyment) just disappears!  But TJ nails it here with the perfect level of spice.  Tomatoey, garlicky, chickpeas in tangy, lovely sauce.

Great With:  If’n ya wanna get all fancy with it, you can serve this over rice and alongside Trader Joe’s Palak Paneer.

Perfect For:  Oh just have this on hand!  Keep it in the freezer for that emergency “oh-no-the-ceiling-caved-in-and-I-can’t-leave-the-house-but-must-eat-my-stress” time OR

Have it on hand for an easy dinner night!  Heat in the microwave and plate it up nicely and pretend like you ordered delivery!  I will keep your secret safe.

Must Know:  This is sometimes labelled gluten-free, sometimes not.  It IS gluten free, and totally delicious!

$2.29 for an entire dinner.  I don’t need to tell you how much less expensive that is than getting Indian food delivered to your door.
