Channa or chole masala is a popular vegetarian dish throughout Northern India. This channa or chole masala is very healthy, nutritious, delicious, and easy to make. Chickpeas and tomatoes are simmered with a mixture of garlic, ginger, onion, and traditional Indian spices like cumin, garam masala, coriander, and turmeric.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon peeled, grated fresh ginger
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, grated
  • 1/2 cup tomato purée
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala or channa masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the onion, ginger, and garlic. Cook until the onions have softened, about 3-4 minutes.

Once the tomatoes are cooked, add the chickpeas and water. Mix well and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the flavors have mixed and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes.
  4. Serve the chana masala with rice, naan, or chapatis.
