    1. 1
      Additional Ingredients needed: 3 tablespoons West Indian Massala (see.
    2. 2
      Kuchella (see.
    3. 3
      Soak the channa in the water overnight (or gently boil it with a little massala for about 3 hours).
    4. 4
      Mix the massala with 1/2 cup of water. Heat the oil in a large skillet and add the garlic, onion, and the massala mixed with water. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes.
    5. 5
      Drain the channa, add it to the skillet, and stir well. Add 1 1/2 cups water, the Congo pepper, and the cumin, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the channa is very soft, about 1 hour. Add the remaining 1/2 cup water if the channa begins to dry out. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      To assemble the doubles, take one piece of bara bread and spread the channa mixture over it. Add hot sauce and kucheela to taste, then place the second piece of bara bread over it to make a sandwich.
