I thought this was very tasty.  I had didn't have Chana Masala, so I used Garam Masala and added a bit of nutmeg and ginger.  I also used fresh green beans.  I added them when the recipe said to, but next time, I might add them in the last 10-12 minutes for a bit of crunch.  All in all, it had a really good flavor and texture.
