Slow Cooker Chana Masala

Another winner from Skinny Taste! I upped the spice quite a bit and served it with Trader Joe’s fresh garlic naan.

1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp ginger, minced
4 hot green chile peppers, chopped
2 tbsp coriander
2 tbsp cumin
3 tsp tumeric
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground cardamom
3 cans chickpeas, rinsed
1 c petite diced tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
Juice of one lemon
1/3 c cilantro, chopped

Turn your slow cooker to sauté, add the oil, onions, garlic, ginger and chilis, cook stirring until softened, about 5 min. Stir in spices and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add chickpeas, 2 c water, tomatoes, and tomato paste. 

Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. When done stir in lemon and Cilantro.

Serves 8.
