Ever since discovering the Curry Tiger Burrito I’ve had Sweet Earth on my mind.  However, unlike the Tiger, this Chana Masala lacks some teeth.  This is a tamed Indian-styled entrée.

For my tastes. this is the result of not enough and the wrong combination of spices.  The tomato sauce surrounding the chana (chickpeas) tastes like, tomato sauce.  For a good Indian dish, the sauce should be a fireworks display for the mouth – hot rockets exploding into bursts of different flavors with an almost overwhelming feel.  This turned out to be a few sparklers at best.

This is a single compartment container so there’s really no way to keep the rice separate from the rest.  I mention that because I like to eat the normally companioned basmati rice separately from the sauce.  But I needn’t have worried about that because the rice here appears to be just unflavored long grain white rice with a funny yellow color.

    Why is there dairy in this?? Weird. Sounds like a total PASS, although i do love that this brand uses organic ingredients.
    Trader joe’s vegan channa masala is my most favorite- and it certainly packs some spice!

      The Sweet Earth one is just labeled vegetarian, not vegan. I don’t know why they chose to add heavy cream to the sauce instead of a non-dairy product. I’ll have to pick up the TJ version next time. In general TJ has some pretty decent Indian products.
