I’m pretty excited to share this recipe with you all. Not only does it highlight some of my favorite vegetables, but the subtle Indian spices in the chana masala take this simple stuffed sweet potato to a whole new level. This meal is perfect for a chilly winter evening, and the aromas in your house will send your family members charging for the kitchen. Even our dog came bouncing in while the veggies were cooking.
If you’ve been to an Indian restaurant before, you’ve probably heard of chana masala before, even if you might not have ordered it yourself–it’s also sometimes called chole masala. The main ingredient in chana masala is chickpeas. They’re simmered to perfection in a tomato-based sauce with Indian spices.
Usually chana masala is served over rice or with a side of naan, however, adding this traditional spicy chickpea dish to a roasted sweet potato is hands down my favorite way to enjoy it. And if you have leftovers, they work hot or cold, so it’s perfect for bringing to lunch. We had one sweet potato and extra filling left over, and we enjoyed it the next morning with a fried egg on top.
