I have decided to continue on with my carb-free-ness. Kind of. Not 100% carb-free, just majorly carb-reduced. I still haven't eaten a piece of bread or had pasta since last Thursday; I did eat some rice on Monday with the Indian dish I made for dinner. I also had the same thing for lunch today. (love leftovers!)
This chana masala dish (sometimes also called chole - pronounced 'sho-lay') is a delicious, flavorful, spicy Indian chick pea dish. I also added some cauliflower (gobi) to it when I made it to make it a little more exciting. Chick peas do have carbohydrates in them, however they also have a lot of fiber and protein which is good. This was a hit between my dad & sis!! My mom is a super picky eater (she loves cereal) and my brother has been sick lately and has simply not been eating (he has issues). I would recommend this to add some spice in your life!! I also recommend to load it up with cilantro. Mmmmm...I could eat cilantro by the bunch.
This dish isn't too challenging to make; it does require some spices that you may not necessarily have on hand though, depending. You could also add other vegetables to it if desired, or chicken even!
