Kabuli chana or chick peas are often served at “gurudwaras”. Simply prepared they are cooked in a blend of masalas and served with puris. This just shows that the tasty chana requires almost no effort as it can taste brilliant when combined with any other ingredients. Here the kabuli chana has been added to a spinach based gravy after being cooked to perfection by adding some baking powder.
- Clean, wash and soak the kabuli chana overnight.
- Next day, wash again, drain, add 11/4 cups of water and salt and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles. Keep aside to cool.
- Heat a vesselful of water and blanch the spinach leaves in it for 2-3 minutes.
- Drain and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste. Keep aside.
- Heat the ghee in a pan, add the garlic and green chillies and sauté till they turn golden brown.
- Add the tomatoes and ginger and mix well.
