Saffron Road’s new Chana Saag is one of India’s favorite vegetarian dishes in the convenience of a frozen entree. This entree includes cumin rice topped with slowly simmered chickpeas and saag (a leafy green spinach that has been sauted with Indian herbs.) I received Chana Saag for this review.
Saffron Road’s Chana Saag Frozen Entree Review
Prior to this review, I had never tried Chana Saag. In fact, I don’t often eat Indian food because I do not like curry. I was interested in trying this because it looks so healthy with chickpeas and sauted spinach and while it does contain Indian Spices, it doesn’t list curry as one of them. If it does contain curry, I have been missing out, because this was delicious. The spices were just the right compliment to this entree.
I liked the fact that this complete meal has about 4oo calories, plenty of protein and fiber. As a meal, it is nutritionally complete and as a frozen entree, very convenient. Typically I will add an extra salad or vegetable to a frozen entree, not in this case. The Chana Saag was delicious and filling all on its own.
About Chana Saag
Marriage of Two Indian Vegetable Classics
Chana are tender chickpeas slowly simmered with ginger and Indian spices. Saag is leafy green spinach freshly picked and carefully sauteed with Indian herbs. Together they become a delightful flavor sensation that’s one of India’s favorite vegetarian dishes. Served over a bed of cumin rice, Chana Saag may become your favorite, too.
