DIRECTIONS

  • Soak Kabuli Channa overnight (To avoid this step, use canned Garbanzo Beans available at any Super Market).
  • Boil the Channa over slow heat in a covered pot with lots of water and salt (no need to add salt later).
  • Keep checking the level of water often.
  • Boil till channa is soft and can be broken by pressing between fingers.
  • This can take several hours.
  • Time can be reduced by adding baking soda (but I would not recommend).
  • Mix all spices together in a bowl.
  • Once the Channa is boiled and done add the spice mixture and bring it to a boil.
  • Do not leave much water.
  • Garnish with Chopped Coriander.
  • Notes:
  • Clove powder can make it spicy and hot. If you do not like it spicy avoid clove powder.
  • If you want to make it tangy increase the quantity of Dry Mango Powder or add a little tamaring juice.
