low fat indian dinner

Indian food from restaurants actually scares me.  The menu options sound healthy enough and there are usually a ton of vegetarian options, but sadly there are unknown quantities of butter lurking within.  So, I prefer to eat my Indian at home.  Now, admittedly, this might not be the most authentic of recipes.  But, it's easy, quick, healthy and tasty.

Just take a jar of Trader Joe's Masala Simmer Sauce and pour it into a stockpot or a good sized sauce pan.  Then throw in a can of garbanzo beans and a can of kidney beans.  Add two chopped skinless chicken breasts.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and let cook for a couple of hours while you entertain yourself with other matters.  In the meantime, you can also make some brown rice.

A couple of hours later you have a delectable dinner for two to three (plus some leftovers).  To spice up the experience, add a splash of your favorite hot sauce.
