This product is made from a spice found in India called chana dal, roasted, and then ground into a powder. The dal was traditionally used in Indian food, but now its use has spread throughout other cultures worldwide. Chana Masala is used to spice up vegetables and stews or even a thickener for gravies and soups! It is fresh, aromatic, and flavorful – unlike conventional spices that have often been sprayed with chemicals and pesticides during cultivation, making them unhealthy. Chana Masala is for anyone looking for delicious, healthy, and very versatile healthy dishes
