Episodes » Episode 33: Chana Masala

Episode 33 is our first jump into Indian food. My recipe for Chana Masala came from weeks of experimenting with this basic recipe. I tried it once verbatim...and it was just OK. 2nd time I played with the spices and it was better, but still not fabulous. 3rd time I added chicken broth and BAM - the wow factor! Just WAIT until you taste this!!
