Step-by-step instructions to cook

Prep

1

Wash the white chana (chole) thoroughly and soak them in enough water overnight or for at least 6-8 hours. Drain the water before cooking.

2

Pressure cook the soaked and drained chole along with fresh water for about 15-20 minutes until the chickpeas are tender.

3

Once cooked, drain the excess water and keep the cooked chickpeas aside.

Cooking

1

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds (jeera) and let them splutter.

2

Add the chopped onions and green chilies to the pan. Sauté until the onions turn golden brown.

3

Add ginger-garlic paste and sauté for a minute until the raw smell disappears.

4

Add the chopped tomatoes and cook until they become soft and mushy.

5

Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well and cook for a couple of minutes to allow the spices to cook and release their flavors.

6

Add the cooked chickpeas (chole) to the pan and mix them with the spice mixture. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, to let the flavors meld together.

7

Sprinkle garam masala and give it a final stir. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
