Channa Pulao N An Award

I prepared channa pulao, just for my daughter who loves channa, green peas a lot..she loves anything with channa and she was asking me to prepare peas briyani are else channa pulao..with a great pleasure i did this pulao as Sunday special with chicken fry for her as she asked since long...This pulao is quite easy n such a protein packed dish, everyone at home love this specially my daughter, as i prepared this delicious pulao for my sweet little heart, this awesome pulao goes to Alka's Just For U Event and also to JFI - Chickpeas guest hosted by Something Foodie...

2cups Cooked Basmati Rice
3/4cup Cooked chickpeas
2nos Whole spices
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)
Oil +ghee

To Grind:
1inch Ginger pieces
4nos Garlic pods
2tbsp Grated Coconut
1tsp Garam masala
2nos Green chillies
2nos Dry Red chillies
1/2bunch Coriander leaves

Grind everything from the list 'To Grind' as fine paste n keep aside...heat enough oil with salt in a large kadai...add the whole spices n fry them until they turns brown...add the chopped onion n tomato pieces n saute them with enough salt until they turns mushy...meanwhile if u would have prepared the rice earlier bring it to room temperature , r if u would have prepared them just before making this dish, transfer them to a large plate n let them cool... add the grounded paste to the veggies n stir in simmer for few minutes n add the cooked channa to the masala...

Stir them continously until the oil get separates, now just mix the cooked rice to the masala n toss them gently until they get well mixed..

Serve hot with any side dishes...
