Notes

Baked potatoes night after night can suck the life out of any dinner creation. Step outside your comfort zone and use these spuds to make a dish inspired by the cuisine of India.

This two-potato Chana Masala is a great option for anyone new to South-Asian flavours or South-Asians looking to take their household favourite to the next level.
