Step-by-step instructions to cook

Prep

1

Rinse the chickpeas in water and soak them overnight for 8 to 9 hours.

2

Drain and rinse the soaked chickpeas once or twice, then set them aside.

3

In a pressure cooker, cook the chickpeas with cinnamon, black cardamoms, cloves, bay leaf (tej patta), crushed ginger, dried gooseberry pieces (amla), and regular salt.

4

Cook for 12 to 15 minutes on medium heat until the chickpeas are tender and soft.

5

Strain the chickpeas and reserve the stock along with the whole spices if you use dried gooseberry.

Cooking

1

Heat oil in a heavy frying pan or wok.

2

Add finely chopped onions and sauté until they turn golden on medium-low heat.

3

Add chopped tomatoes and ginger; sauté until tomatoes are soft, and the oil separates from the mixture.

4

Stir in the cooked chickpeas and add ground spice powders, stir, and sauté for 1-2 minutes.

5

Pour in the strained chickpea stock (or water), slit green chillies, and salt. Mix well.
