Channa Masala and Coffee Winner

Channa Masala is a wonderful curry made with chick pea's its packed with flavor and protein.

  • one cup of pre soaked chick peas, I soaked mine overnight
  • 3 small tomatoes
  • 2 green chillis or red dried ones work well
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoon masala powder
  • teaspoon cumin powder
  • teaspoon coriander powder
  • salt to taste
  • teaspoon mustard seeds
  1. pressure cook the channa/chick peas for 2 whistles
  2. in another pan heat some canola oil and pop the mustard seeds, add the green chili, onion and saute for 3 minutes
  3. then add the tomatoes, spices and reduce down to a paste for 10 minutes
  4. add the cooked channa and a little water, salt and masala powder if desired, taste to see if more spice is needed.
Great with rice and green beans with coconut (recipe on the way) or chapatti.
