Channa Masala

I cant imagine eating bhatura without channa masala, every household will have their own way of making channa masala, even sometimes i mix and match the ingredients according to my mood. This channa masala is kinda restaurant style of dish as i prepared it as a usual channa masala will go for. As i told earlier this week's blogging marathon is going to be cooking with restaurant menu as theme, for the second day of blogging marathon i chosed to cook channa masala from the category kadai, listed by Srivalli from the Balaji bhavan restaurant menu.

We had this channa masala with pooris for our dinner two days back, since this channa masala tastes fabulous you can even serve them with a mildly spiced pulao or rice dishes. My daughter relished simply this channa masala with rice for her lunch.Obviously with amchur powder and chaat masala in it, this masala will definitely tickle your tastebuds. Check out the blogger running this 24th edition of blogging marathon here.


2cups Cooked channa/chickpeas
2nos Tomatoes (chopped)
1no Onion (big & chopped finely)
1/2cup Tomato puree
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Cumin powder
1tbsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Amchur powder
1/4tsp Chaat masala
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1tbsp Kasuri methi/dry methi leaves
Oil
Salt


Heat the oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds  and let them fry.

Add the chopped tomato,onion,ginger garlic paste and saute them until they turns mushy..

Add the tomato puree with salt, red chilly powder, cook them in simmer.

Finally add the cooked channa,coriander powder,chaat masala, amchur powder, garam masala powder,cumin powder and cook for few seconds.

Add enough water and cook again in simmer for a few minutes,finally add the kasuri methi leaves,bring it to boil and put off the stove.
