Easy Channa Masala

Channa Masala is a delicious Northern Indian dish featuring chickpeas (Channa). Here is my version - and it's very easy to make. You can use canned chickpeas if you like, but I find it is much better if you use dry chickpeas and boil them until very soft, so that they are easy to cook into a gravy. With canned chickpeas you will need to simmer the dish much longer in order to soften them to the right texture. With a little planning ahead, dry chickpeas are very easy to manage. This recipe assumes you used the dry chickpeas.

    • 1 cup dry chickpeas, soaked in 4 cups water overnight, drained, and rinsed

 

    • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped

 

    • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

 

    • 1 tbsp whole cumin seeds

 

    • 1 tsp ground coriander

 

    • 2 tsp garam masala powder

 

    • 1 tsp garlic powder

 

    • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

 

    • 1 15oz can unsalted diced tomatoes

 

    • cayenne pepper and salt to taste

Start 3 hours ahead of time and combine the drained chickpeas with 4 cups of water into a pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover and let cook for 3 hours. This should yield about 2 cups of cooked chickpeas. After 3 hours, drain well. If using canned chickpeas, start here. Take about 1 cup of the cooked/canned chickpeas and mash them in a bowl with a fork until they form a coarse puree. Set aside.

In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium flame. Add cumin seeds and fry for about 20-30 seconds, until they brown. Immediately add chopped onion and stir frequently until onion begins to brown, or about 5-10 minutes. Add coriander, garam masala, garlic, and ginger, and stir to combine well. Add the diced tomatoes and their juice, and the pureed chickpeas. Stir well to form a gravy and wait for it to come to a boil. Add the remaining (1 cup) chickpeas, cayenne pepper/salt to taste, stir to combine, and reduce heat to low. Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes. If you used canned chickpeas, add about 1/4 cup water, and cook covered on low heat for at least 30 minutes. Remove from heat, stir well, and serve. Makes about 4 servings.

You can serve this over rice, with bread, or by itself. Enjoy!
