Serves 4.

Chickpea and Red Lentil Masala

Beans and legumes make for some of the most delicious and economical dinner options for all diners, from vegans to meat lovers. A range of pantry spices generously imbue this protein-, fibre-, and iron-loaded Indian stew with flavour. Brightened with fresh cilantro, it’s a thrifty dinner that tastes like a million bucks.


Build a budget-friendly Indian banquet by stirring unsweetened shredded coconut into brown rice, adding diced cucumber to plain yogurt, and purchasing mango chutney. Serve these alongside the masala for a takeout fake-out.
