Saffron Road’s Chana Saag Frozen Entree Review

16_AHC_ChanaSaag_CrtnSaffron 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.

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.

    Looks very tasty! I don’t typically cook Indian food but recently made two dishes for the first time (saag with tofu and Chana Masala) and loved them. Easier than I thought, too!

    This dish looks very healthy and I like the ingredients in it. I would give this meal a try! I like Indian food and I have not seen these at my store, but I will look up to see where a store is located by me. Thanks for the delicious review!

    This does sound good. I like Indian spices and would definitely reach for this on a busy day when I don’t have time to cook. It looks fairly healthy for a frozen meal.
