I love vegetarian meals, and my husband loves meat. This means I have to be extra creative or careful when I do make a fully vegetarian meal so he can enjoy it. I try to include grains and other proteins that he might enjoy. I knew he likes Lobia (Black Eyed Peas Curry) so I figure he likes the thicker consistency curries and I tried making a chick pea curry which is famous in restaurants as Chana Masala. I usually don't like it much in restaurants as I find it too oily, but I wanted to try making some version of it so I went ahead and tried this out as I had a vegetarian friend coming over anyways. I tried to keep this simple and added a little twist in the flavour by using scotch bonnet peppers rather than green chillies or red chilli powder. It seems like there are a lot of ingredients but in my method, there is not much hands on time required. Oh and there is a surprise ingredient in here that you wouldn't expect… The verdict? Well my husband said and I quote "It's good... it'd be better with meat in it" haha. My best friend the vegetarian? "Omg it's so good I want more and more" followed by a message on FB the next day saying "I want more- I'm still dreaming of that cholay". So let me know how you liked my Chick Peas Curry also known as cholay or chana masala. W.P
