Chana masala is a popular vegetarian Indian curry dish made with tomatoes, spices, and chickpeas. (Chana means chickpea in Hindi.) This slow cooker version means you can make it whenever you want without having to hang around the kitchen while it cooks. The recipe calls for potatoes, which make the dish more filling, but you can leave them out for a lighter option or substitute sweet potatoes or winter squash. Chana masala will keep up to five days in the fridge and also freezes well for future meals. Serve over brown basmati rice.
