Chole Masala

Chole Masala,a good combination for Rice/Chapati.I was busy chatting with my friend in India and just didn't notice that its time for my hubby to come home for lunch,then I thought of making this curry and Jeera Rice.I had half a can of Chick Peas left in the fridge which I used them last week to make some curry.Chole Masala turned our perfect and it just looked the same as the one served in restaurants.


Ingredients:

Chick Peas: 1.5 cup(I used canned Chick Peas)
Onion:2 medium(finely chopped)
Ginger Garlic Paste:1 spn
Coriander Powder:1 spn
Cumin Seeds:1 spn
Cloves:3-4
Cinnamon Stick:1/4 inch
Elachi:1
Oil:3 spns
Green Chillies:2
Red Chilli Pwder:1 spn(adjust to taste)
Salt:To taste

Procedure:

1.Heat a pan,add oil,when hot add cumin seeds and let them splatter,now add in the cinnamon,cloves,elachi and fry till done.
2.Now add the finely chopped onions,fry till transculate,add salt,green chilli and now fry till onions turn light brown color,at this time add the ginger garlic paste and till it leaves it raw smell.
3.Add the coriander powder,chilli powder and mix well,add half cup of water and cook on medium flame for 5 mins.
4.Check for the seasonings and add the chick peas(rinse and wash them in cold water and just microwave for 3 mins),mix well and let them cook along with the spices for 5-8 mins.
5.Finally add chopped coriander leaves and serve it hot with Pulka/Chapathi or any rice.
I served it with Jeera Rice.
