Chana masala (or chole masala) is a very popular Northern Indian dish originating in Punjab. There are many variations, though the dish typically includes onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, chilies, coriander and turmeric and of course, chickpeas. This is one of the versions of chana masala that I make using homemade chana masala powder, although you can find commercial blends of chana masala powder as well as the other ingredients in this recipe at your local Indian or Asian grocer.
