Step-by-step instructions to cook

Prep

1

Rinse chickpeas and soak them overnight. Drain and rinse again.

2

In a pressure cooker, add chickpeas, dried amla or a tea bag, and water. Pressure cook until chickpeas are soft.

3

In a pan, dry roast black cardamoms, cinnamon, black peppercorns, cloves, tej patta, ajwain, cumin seeds (jeera), coriander seeds, fennel seeds, dry pomegranate seeds, and Kashmiri dry red chilies. Grind them finely to make the chole masala powder.

Cooking

1

Heat oil in a pan. Add ginger-garlic paste and sauté briefly.

2

Add onions, and sauté until translucent.

3

Add tomatoes, and sauté until oil leaves the sides.

4

Lower heat, add the chole masala powder, red chili powder, turmeric, and garam masala. Stir.

5

Add slit green chilies and cooked chickpeas and mix well.

6

Add salt and 1-1.25 cups of chickpea stock or water. Stir and cover.

7

Simmer until you get the desired consistency.

8

If you didn't use dry pomegranate seeds, add amchur powder. Mix.
