Chana Palak is a mouthwatering subzi that makes you feel satisfied not just about the taste but the health aspects too! A nutrient-rich combination of spinach and white chick peas is enhanced with not one but two flavourful pastes – one of onions, and another of brinjals and tomatoes. Together with other common spices and spice powders, these pastes play a huge role in transforming the spinach and chick peas into a stunning show-stopper subzi!
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the brinjal, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 4 to 5 minutes or till the brinjal turn soft, while stirring occassionally. Sprinkle a little water if required. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Combine the brinjal and tomatoes and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste. Keep aside.
- Heat a non-stick kadhai and add the cumin seeds and dry roast on a slow flame for 30 seconds.
- Add the cinnamon, cloves and prepared onion paste and dry roast on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle a little water if required to avoid the onions from burning.
- Add the prepared brinjal-tomato paste and dry roast on a medium flame for another 1 minute.
- Add the garam masala, chilli powder, dried mango powder, coriander powder, salt, kabuli chana and ½ cup of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the spinach, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
