Chana masala is a Punjabi dish which consists of chickpeas. This is one of popular dish of Indian cuisine.There are many version of this dish available across India. Mostly chana are cooked with lots of onion, garlic, ginger, tomato. My version is without onion, garlic with just little oil.  Chana masala means spiced chickpeas curry, chana mean chickpeas and masala means a mixture of spices.
