Chana Masala w Cucumber Mint Raita

I actually made this a couple weeks ago and forgot what exactly i put in here… my bad. (Although smittenkitchen has a great recipe!)

A few notes:

  • canned chickpeas tend to get mushy on you. adjust cooking times accordingly.
  • lemon substitute for amchoor powder works wonderfully. thank you, smittenkitchen.
  • lots of cumin!
  • i use roma tomatoes for all stew-like recipes. less acidity.

Cucumber Mint Raita

This I do remember. And you will too! It’s super easy


  • 1-2 cups greek yogurt (Fage, plain)
  • half a cucumber, diced into small cubes
  • 1/4 red onion, minced
  • ~ 1 tsp cumin
  • ~ tsp paprika
  • salt
  • 1/2 lime, juiced.


  1. mix and chill.

that’s it! a wonderfully cool and refreshing accompaniment to a spicy chana masala. get some store bought garlic naan, and dinner is served.
