Channa/Chole masala

Channa masala, sounds familiar rt?? I think ther's no household in india not making this wonderful dish. I don't know who discovered this yummy dish but i salute those people from my heart...  A BIG THANKSSSSSSSSS

Channa -- 1 cup or 1 can
Tomato puree -- 1 and a half tomato
Chopped green chilly -- 1 tsp
Besan flour -- 1 spoon
Water -- 1 cup
Salt -- according to ur taste
Hing -- 1 dash
Turmeric powder --1/4 tsp
Redchilli powder -- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder -- 3 tsp
Cumin seeds -- 1 tsp
Corainder leaves -- 1 sprig
Oil -- 2tbsp
Ginger garlic paste (gg) -- 1tbsp
Method :
Soak the channa overnight and pressure cook for 3 whistles. Actually, i used canned channa that makes the job easy. U don't hv to soak it which i always forget to do that part and u don't have to cook it seperately. Take a hollow pan adding oil ,when it's hot drop in the hing,cumin seeds. Let them splutter. Once it's done add the besan flour and fry till it turns golden brown, take additional care while doing it,we don't want any other colour !!! :) . Now comes the tomato puree in ,chopped chillies,gg paste and all the masala's ( turmeric powder, redchilli powder,corainder powder,salt)

Saute all this well enough so that u don't smell anything raw and keep continuing the process until u see the oil oozes out of it.

 It's the right time to add our channa and water. Give it a stir and cook till the channa becomes tender. Mash some of the channa to get the creamy texture.. This goes well with roti,poori, batura.... u know what ? am gonna make batura...Well, what r u waiting for ? Go ahead ,start making and start digging!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy eating guys....
