Here is a tongue-tickling curry of sprouted kala chana, cooked with whole spices, ginger-green chilli paste and jaggery.
Medium-spicy with a mild sweetness, the Kala Chana Ambti has a very homely flavour, which literally makes you lick your fingers with delight after you’re done.
Had with a bowl of hot Cooked Rice or Chapatis it gives you the satisfaction of having had a wholesome and tasty meal.
- Combine the sprouted kala chana and 2 cups of water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook for 4 whistles. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the clove, cinnamon, mustard seeds and cumin seeds and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and curry leaves and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Add the cooked kala chana along with the water, ginger-green chilli paste, turmeric powder, chilli powder, jaggery and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Switch off the flame, add the lemon juice and mix well.
- Serve hot garnished with coriander.
