We at FoodieTown are so excited to add Breanna MacDonald as a contributor. Brea, or locally known as the hilarious foodie Instagrammer @Tablefortynine, has been creating delicious festive winter dishes, like the purple cabbage and bean stew, that double down on the nutrition, affordable ingredients and the flavour. We are so lucky to have her as our contributor allowing us to publish her recipes on our site. PS, we can’t wait for the Table49 cookbook! But until then find her Patron account for recipes and tales of Sex & Sandwiches. Until then make this delicious chana masala recipe with yogurt flatbread. The leftovers can be used to fill samosas – recipe coming soon!
A comforting, affordable, and oh so nourishing Chana Masala to keep you warm and full and happy ♥️
As well a note to say: adding coconut and greens is not traditional, and every home has their own spice blend when making this.
Again, this is how I make it, there are thousands of Indian and Pakistani aunties, mothers, sisters, and chefs who make this better than I ever will, I encourage you to explore more deeply into the beautiful world of Indian food and culture and to listen to the voices that truly matter.
Serves 4 with leftovers, and keep those leftovers to use for recipes happening later in the week.
If you don’t feel like making your own spice blends, PLEASE, don’t use “curry powder,” check out Aman Dosanj ‘s (yep, Harry Dosanj’s talented sister) Paisley Notebook’s Spice Blends for some incredible local options.
As for the yogurt flatbread, a favourite of mine and yours since I first wrote it up a few years ago. Quick and delicious, this can be utilized for just about anything♥️

Food excites me, it always has. More than that, it excites me to share my love of food. It’s how I express love, it’s how I heal, it’s how I flirt; it is everything. And the cooking thing, I’ve been doing it with the help of mentors for over 10 years.
I don’t want to brag, but I know how to crab, prawn, pluck a chicken, and milk a cow. Brea is founder of tablefortynine.com, an Okanagan based caterer and makes wicked recipes that not only help you save money but are nutritious!
