Chana Masala – Slimming World Recipe

We have a tin of chickpeas in the cupboard and I have no idea where they came from. I’m thinking they were probably won in a raffle or something!
Anyway, they’ve been hanging around for a while and I’m sick of seeing them. I went in search of a recipe to use them up and came across this one for Chana Masala.
