Hello loves 🙂 Today I’m sharing a quick and easy chana masala wrap that makes for a easy weeknight dinner thanks to canned chickpeas and frozen paratha (#winning)! My mom makes amazing chana masala/chole bhature but it involves a lot of prepping like blending onions and fresh tomatoes. SO, to make this a bit quicker, I use diced onions and tomato paste (so you don’t have to wash an applianc ! lol)

If you’re making this for the kiddos- it tastes great with a slice of cheese in it!! You can also add in some veggies like chopped up spinach! I served it with some fresh sliced onion and a little squeeze of lemon! I used canned chickpeas but of course you can use fresh- and if you’re talented you can make some homemade paratha! These would also be delicious in a naan! I also let these cook until the gravy is thickened because if there is too much gravy-they’ll soak right through and make the paratha super soggy!

Hope you guys like this recipe!

Chana Masala Paratha Wraps




Yield 3-4 Wraps


1 15.5 oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 small red onion, diced

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 bay leaf

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

1 serrano, diced finely

1 tbsp minced garlic

1.5 tbsp Badshah Punjabi Chole Masala

1 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp garam masala

1 cup water

2 tbsp oil

2 tbsp cilantro finely chopped

1 package frozen paratha


  1. Heat a large skillet or pot over medium high heat and add oil.
  2. Once oil is hot, add cumin seeds, bay leaf and serrano chilis. Let splutter and then add onion and salt.
  3. Cook onions until slightly browned and then add garlic, tomato paste and rest of the spices. Continue cooking for 3-4 minutes and then add in water and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add in chickpeas and cook for about 6-8 minutes covered. Remove cover and using a potato masher, gently smash just the chickpeas just a few times (will help thicken the gravy). If gravy is too liquidy- let it simmer uncovered to let it thicken. 
  5. Add in cilantro, stir (taste to check for salt) and place inside of a paratha wrap.
  6. Serve hot!
