Chana Masala

rated 5 of 5 stars Backpacker’s Pantry’s updated recipe of Chana Masala is a very flavorful and surprisingly filling dehydrated meal that has the perfect blend of Indian curry spices, rice, chilies, and garbanzo beans (chick peas).

Backpacker’s Pantry Mexican Charros Beans & Rice has become a game-changer for store-bought dehydrated meals: OK for vegan/vegetarian Ddets, great calories-to-weight ratio, and most of all DELICIOUS!
