Tikka masala is a dish containing a protein in a creamy sauce flavored with spices that can come together fairly quickly, especially if your protein is the garbanzo beans (chickpeas).
Garbanzo beans offer a substantial source of protein in addition to high amounts of folate (vitamin B9) and manganese. These legumes also provide iron, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and fiber too!
However, it may be the spices in this dish that are the real stars. The cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, and turmeric contain numerous phytonutrients with powerful antioxidant properties while they support digestion and stabilize blood sugar levels (cinnamon).
