QUICK CHOLE/ CHICKPEA CURRY

1Hey there. So yesterday I celebrated my birthday. Not that it was a grand affair. But I had pre-birthday celebration when my colleagues came home for a baking class. And we baked my birthday cake. Will soon share a recipe of the same.

For today’s post is this quick version of chole masala. I need variety in my food. And dosa is a regular in any south indian home. I like to pair it up with various different options. One such wonderful combination is chole masala.

3INGREDIENTS:

Kabuli Chana – 1 cup soaked overnight

Onion – 1 big

Tomato – 2 medium

Coriander Powder – 2 tsp

Chilly Powder – 1 tsp

Chole Masala – 1 tsp

Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp

Dry mango powder – 1/4 tsp

Chopped Coriander Leaves – 1 tblspn

Oil – 2 tblspn

Salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Pressure cook chana for 1 whistle and then lower the flame for 15 minutes. ( the cooking time also depends on the quality of the chana)
  2. In a blender blend together onion and tomato.
  3. Heat oil in a kadai.
  4. Add the onion-tomato paste and saute till it starts leaving oil from the sides of the kadai.
  5. Add coriander, chilly, chana masala, dry mango powder and turmeric powder and mix well.
  6. Add the cooked chana masala and mix well.
  7. Let it boil for 5 minutes. Add water if required.
  8. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

Enjoy with dosa or rotis. 2
