Description: This is an awesome recipe that uses canned garbanzo beans for that particular occasion. This tastes as good as any restaurant Chana Masala I have ever had, and better than most. A "must try".
Recipe of Chana Masala
|Large Chopped Tomato||2||Numbers|
|Medium Onion Thinly Sliced||1||Numbers|
|Crushed Garlic Clove||2||Numbers|
|15 Ounce Can Garbanzo Beans (chick Peas/chana Dal)||2||Can|
|Chopped Coriander Leaves||To Taste|
1. Put the oil in pan and place over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and ginger, then add the onion. Cover and cook about 5 to 7 minutes, or until the onion is pale. Add water as needed to prevent the onion from sticking to the skillet. 2. Add the ketchup, tomato, and chopped pepper, and stir for 1 minute. Increase the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat to medium, and cook, stirring frequently, until the tomato is well cooked. 3. Uncover and continue to cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the ground cumin, ground coriander, salt, turmeric, paprika, and sugar. 4. Add garbanzo beans with their juice and the garam masala. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer covered about 20 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken. Stir periodically. 5. Top with coriander leaves and serve over rice.
Save the juice from the canned garbanzo beans to add during cooking.
