Recipe Ingredients for Channa Curry

2 cup Chickpeas
1 large tomatoes
1 large onion
1/2 tbsp chilli powder
1/4 tbsp salt
1/4 tbsp turmeric
2 tbsp olive oil

Recipe Directions for Channa Curry

  1. Heat one teaspoon of peanut oil or ghee in a large pot over medium heat.

  2. Add and toast teaspoon each- cumin and mustard seeds.

  3. When seeds start to pop, add the onion, and cook until translucent.

  4. Add the tomatoes and cook on high heat until the tomatoes turn to soft. Press with a spatula and mush them.

  5. To this tomato sauce, add the cooked chickpeas, pureed chickpea paste, chana masala powder, salt, red chilli powder, turmeric and one to two cups of water. Stir to combine.

  6. Have a taste and adjust the spice levels to your liking. Keep the heat on medium and cook for about 20 to 30 minutes, until the curry thickened. (The curry should not spread like a flooding river when served on a plate.)

  7. Just before turning off the heat, stir in finely chopped fresh cilantro and lime or lemon juice to taste.
