Chana Masala A Lip smacking indian recipe
A fantastic and easy to cook recipe, Chana Masala
is my favorite Punjabi cuisine .Made with Chick
Peas and other variety of spices this wonderful
dish can be eaten with rice or chappatis or naan.
On the Indian streets you will see small kiosks
selling this chana masala either with kulcha
(Chana-Kulcha) or batura (ChanaBatura). You can
eat it the way you want. So lets make this super
delicious super easy recipe. You are going to
love it.

ingredients
S.No. Ingredients Quantity
1 White Chick Peas (garbanzo beans/kabuli chana) 1 bowl
2 Onion, finely chopped 1 Large
3 Tomatoes Chopped 2
4 Ginger ½ inch
5 Garlic 3-4 cloves
6 Green Chili, finely chopped 1
17 Coriander Leaves 1 tablespoon chopped
8 Red Chili Powder ½ teaspoon
9 Turmeric Powder ¼ teaspoon
10 Teabags 1-2
11 Cooking Oil 2-3 tablespoon
12 Salt As per taste
3
Directions for cooking
Initial Preparations Boiling Wash the chanas
completely in water.
4
Then, douse them overnight or for 7-8 hours.
5
Heat and boil up the chanas with some salt and
(1-2 teabags)
6
in a pressure cooker or a covered skillet with
enough water. I prefer to use pressure cooker as
it takes lesser time (15-20 minutes). After its
cooked, place it in a bowl and keep it aside.
Dont dispose of emptied water, keep it for
further use. In a blender make a puree by mixing
chopped tomatoes, green chili, garlic and chopped
ginger.
7
Tempering (Frying) for Chana Masala Heat cooking
oil in a pan add onion and sauté until it turns
light brown.
8
Add tomato puree and salt to the pan. It is very
important to fry it for 5-6 minute till oil
starts to separate as this will remove the raw
smell of tomatoes, ginger and garlic.
Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, dry
masala powder.
9
Finishing stroke while preparing chana masala Add
the boiled chana, mix it well and then add water.
Use the same water which we used to boil the
chick peas.
10
If that water is not enough or if it is cold,
boil the water separately in a pan beforehand and
add it to the pan.
11
Cover it with lid and allow the mixture to come
to boil at a low flame.
12
Switch of the flame after it boils and add
coriander leaves onion slices for seasoning.
Serve super delicious chana masala with bhatura
or steamed rice. Feel free to visit
