Home cooked vegetarian food recipe - Chana Masala (Chickpea Curry)

Here is another new vegetarian cooking recipe for our yoga retreats guests here in Langkawi.

Chana Masala (Chickpea curry) (serve 6-8 people)
This is a recipe I learned and modified from Manjula's Kitchen

400 grams of chickpeas, soaked over night and then cooked in pressure cooker for 15 minutes after it starts to steam. Turn off the heat. Wait until the steam completely released, then drained the chickpeas.

8 tomatoes, grilled in oven for about 15 minutes, peeled and blend into a puree.

2 teaspoons cumin seeds (jeera)

3 tablespoons gram flour / chickpea flour (Besan)

3 teaspoons ginger paste

2 red or green chillies, chopped

6 teaspoons coriander powder (dhania)

1 and 1/2 teaspoons turmeric powder (haldi)

1 and 1/2 teaspoons chilly powder

2 heap teaspoons salt (adjust to taste)

1 and 1/2 teaspoons garam masala or chana masala

Cooking oil

2 cups of water

Stir evenly until the paste well-cooked and fragrant.

Add in the chickpeas, garam masala or chana masala and salt. Add water, cooked until boiling. Switch to low heat and cover. Cooked for 15-20 minutes.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
