This is a nice simple recipe for kala chana little dry chick peas, good source of protein and fiber, and I will eat them tonight with chapatti, lovely!
Ingredients: chana, ginger/garlic paste, coconut shredded, 1/2 red onion, salt, masala powder, 1 green chili, curry leaves, tomatoes and a little tomato puree and tamarind paste.
1. Soak the chana in water overnight
2. pressure cook the chana 4 times, with onion and tomato, these little things need a lot of whistles to soften them up!
3. fry onion, chili, curry leaves in canola oil, add masala powder, and tomato and let it reduce down, then add the pressure cooked chana, tamarind paste and coconut and simmer for 20-30 min to let all the flavors sink in and get soft.
Enjoy, oh and don't forget to check out the giveaway in my previous post you have this month to send your recipes, looking forward to it, using one of my favourite things in the world coffee in any way you like!
