Black Chick Pea Curry



Heres a great vegetarian curry, packed with micro nutrients, protein and fiber. I have posted it before and make it a lot one of hubby's favorites in fact my Mum in Law has made this already for him and she only arrived last week!



Ingredients:
  • chana - little black chick pea, available in Indian stores
  • ginger/garlic paste
  • coconut shredded
  • 1/2 red onion
  • salt to taste
  • one tablespoon masala powder
  • 1 green chili
  • curry leaves- if you have some
  • 3 small tomatoes
  • a little tomato puree
  • tamarind paste 1/4 handful soaked in hot water
Method:

1. Soak the 
Channa in water overnight
2. pressure cook the 
Channa 4 times, with onion and tomato, these little things need a lot of whistles to soften them up!
3. heat a little canola oil, add onion, chili, ginger and garlic and tomatoes and simmer down to a paste for about 10 minutes
4. then add the cooked chick peas, some water, masala powder, salt to taste, coconut and tamarind (its fine without it as well) and simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
