Chana masala is a very common and popular Indian dish. This dish is enjoyed across every corner of India by everyone. While Chana is good for health, Oil is a slow poison. I decided to make this dish little healthier by removing the oil and ghee.
By removing the oil I also managed to remove the future plaques from your heart and blood vessels. This dish is 100% heart friendly and targeted towards weight loss and overall health improvement. This is an easy to cook recipe and can be cooked by anyone as I have included items which are very easily available.
Noticeable benefit of this dish includes sustainable, stable and healthy weight loss, reduced triglyceride levels, reduced cholesterol levels, Balanced sugar level, improved immune system and increased energy levels.
