Slow Cooker Chana Masala

Slow Cooker Chana Masala

(6 PointsPlus ® ) Slow Cooker Chana Masala Recipe
I have been making this Crockpot Chana Masala for years. We love it for an easy dinner with rice, Naan, and some roasted veggies. Even my kids love it. We also love this Quick and Easy Chana Masala when I don’t have time for the slow cooker.
One of my favorite, go-to cuisines, when I’m in the mood for a vegetarian meal, is Indian food. Not only are Indian foods almost always packed with flavor and spice, but they are also often naturally vegetarian and many times work well in the slow cooker — one of my favorite ways to make a lazy meal.
This recipe is a for a classic Chana Masala made with chickpeas, tomatoes, and loads of spices. You can easily amp up the heat factor to your liking by adding extra jalapenos or sneaking in some cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, hot sauce after cooking, or all of the above. I also sometimes add kale or spinach (or other hearty green) to the slow cooker for extra veggies and color, but this does veer away from the classic preparation.
The first time I had this meal, I was dating my now-husband and we were discussing where to have dinner. You know the talk — one of you throws out literally every kind of cuisine and you both say something like, “Well, that sounds okay…but what about ?”
And you never really get anywhere. And the more you talk, the hangrier you get, and the worse it makes the decision-making. So, finally we played rock-paper-scissors and whoever won got to pick. Needless to say I’m a champion at that game, and good thing, too, because that dinner was my inspiration for creating this version.
This will keep great so don’t worry if you feel like you are making a big batch. You can freeze it for later, either in air-tight containers or zipper bags. Ideas for Customizing Slow Cooker Chana Masala
As I said before, sometimes I’ll throw some greens into the crockpot along with the other ingredients if I’m feeling it on that day. That’s what’s so great about Indian food and slow cookers, and, well, both of them together — it’s easy to customize to your liking. Kale and spinach are both great choices for adding greens, but you could also add frozen peas, carrots, or another veggie mix to the crockpot during the last hour of cooking. Be careful not to overload it with too many veggies though, you don’t want them to overwhelm the dish. Omit the butter and add olive oil instead or another healthy oil instead. Skip the jalapenos if you don’t like the heat and add a finely diced green bell pepper for some color. Mash some of the chickpeas for a “meatier” texture to your dish. Blend some of the chickpeas and sauce for a “soupier” texture. If you’re a fan of cilantro, sprinkle some on your dish just after you serve it. You could also add a dollop or two of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt after serving for a creamier dish. Serve this dish with additional, fresh lemon wedges for a little bit of acidity and to brighten the flavors. How to Cook Chana Masala in the Instant Pot
Sometimes you cook fast, sometimes you cook slow. Sometimes fast just isn’t fast enough and you need it faster! Like, right this instant! That’s when an Instant Pot comes in handy. And yes, you can make this in an Instant Pot with just a few tweaks:
Turn your pot to “saute.” Add the oil or butter and let it get warm, then add the onion and stir until it browns. Add in the next eight ingredients, plus the tomatoes and let them break down a bit, still in saute mode. Finally, add the chickpeas and vegetable broth, salt and pepper, and put the lid on. Make sure it’s secure, close the pressure valve, and cook for 30 minutes at high pressure. Let the pressure release according to directions, then carefully take the lid off, and add salt and pepper to taste. Add lemon juice, stir, and serve! What’s the difference between tikka masala and chana masala?
For a long time, I thought these dishes were the same, and it just depended on where you went as to what the restaurant would serve. It wasn’t until I asked for tikka masala and got meat in what I thought was supposed to be a vegetarian dish that I realized that there is a difference.
Tikka masala is spiced similarly to chana masala, but it usually has diced or cubed meat and/or vegetables and has a bit of a spicer sauce blend. Chana masala is the same dish but with chickpeas (or chana), and isn’t as spicy.
No matter which dish you choose, you’re sure to love it as much as I do!

How to Enjoy Niagara Falls, New York in 24 Hours

Resource Guide for Luxury Travel, Culture, & Eats RESOURCE GUIDE FOR LUXURY TRAVEL, CULTURE, & EATS How to Enjoy Niagara Falls, New York in 24 Hours I’m showing my age by admitting that I’d been dreaming of seeing beautiful Niagara Falls since I was a child. I had seen it as a luxurious travel giveaway on The Price is Right game show and I dreamed about the romance and mystery of it ever since. How to Enjoy Niagara Falls, New York in 24 Hours
Luckily, I got to check off Niagara Falls, New York from my bucket list when I went there for a travel conference. Though our time was limited, it was magical seeing the amazing falls. I didn’t realize how many other outdoor opportunities were around the city or what a cool food scene it had. I was happily surprised.
This slice of paradise is somewhere you should at least visit once in your life and here is what I recommend you doing in Niagara Falls, New York in 24 hours.
Thanks to the Destination Niagara Falls USA and Travel Media Showcase for hosting my visit to upstate New York. As always, opinions and reviews are 100% mine and unbiased. To plan your complete visit to Niagara Falls USA visit the Niagara Falls tourism website . Viewing the Falls
First things first, when visiting Niagara Falls, New York, the most important thing is to get to the falls to appreciate its gorgeous scenery. You will want to take the Maid of the Mist boat tour of the Niagara Falls basin for the best views of the falls and a legendary boat ride. The ride starts and ends on the American side of the Niagara Falls State Park (America’s oldest state park!), but crosses into Ontario for a bit. You will most likely get wet on this awesome and thrilling ride.
While the boat doesn’t feel unsafe at any time, the waterfall sprays’ strong forces make it hard to miss getting wet. Never fear, as blue rain ponchos are provided to help keep you somewhat dry. Niagara Falls has 600,000 gallons of water falling every second!
Maid of the Mist has been running continually since 1846 and holds 600 passengers. The three waterfalls you will see on the ride are Bridal Veil Falls, the American Falls, and Horseshoe Falls (the Canadian falls and the largest).
Be sure to take the Cave of the Winds tour at Bridal Veil Falls, which is separate from Maid of the Mist. From observation platforms at the base of Bridal Veil and American Falls, you’ll have fantastic photo-ops at these favorite tourist attractions as you walk down wooden platforms to get up close and personal with the falls.
Rubber sandals and ponchos are provided, while a museum (World Changed Here Pavilion) explains how Nikola Tesla’s AC current powered the mighty falls. Where to Eat in Niagara Falls
A great lunch option in Niagara Falls is the tantalizing lunch buffet from Zaika Indian Cuisine & Bar . Choices may change or rotate day-to-day, but you will find several main entrées to choose from, a handful of veggie side dishes and accompaniments, and plenty of vegetarian fares. Zaika offers free parking and has a noteworthy happy hour. Save room for the Carrot Kheer or Rasmalai sweets for dessert.
The mother of all bar, ballgame, get together, and munchies food was created by accident, or sheer genius, in Buffalo, New York by Teresa Bellissimo—the iconic buffalo wing. While we aren’t in Buffalo, Niagara Falls is blessed to have a second location of Anchor Bar in Niagara Falls serving up the mouthwatering appetizer favorite. Have the wings served with the flavor you want (mild, medium, honey-garlic, hot, spicy-hot, bbq, suicidal, chipotle BBQ), paired with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, or try the buffalo wings on a salad, which is how I prefer them. Bonus Offering
Did you know that you could gamble in Niagara Falls, New York? I loved Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. This casual high-rise has a glitzy, glamorous feel to it with awesome shopping, restaurants, and a spa. Slots (3600), poker, keno, table games (90)—they are all available in this 147,000-square-foot gaming floor. You may even want to take in a musical performance at either the intimate Bear’s Den Showroom or in the 2,400- seat Seneca Niagara Events Center.
Be sure not to miss eating TimBits from Tim Horton’s Cafe and Bake Shop while you are there, but don’t make the mistake of calling them donut holes. I learned this one the hard way. Where to Stay in Niagara Falls
We stayed at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Niagara Falls and it was a perfect choice. The hotel is within walking distance of the falls and Anchor Bar as well as downtown and is nice and new. The Doubletree’s rooms are spacious and have comfy beds with nice linens. I enjoyed having a mini-fridge in my room and stellar views from the enormous windows. The lobby bar is swanky, and you will want to stop by for a drink. Niagara Falls: An Iconic American City
It only took 50 years for me to make it to Niagara Falls, New York for a look at the famous falls. Better late than never! I hope you, too, will get to visit this fantastic wonder. You are going to be amazed!
Niagara Falls Fun Facts: Four of the Five Great Lakes (minus Ontario) water flows over Niagara Falls. The water then travels to Lake Ontario, followed by the St. Lawrence River, and then empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Niagara Falls Photo Gallery
