Makes – 4 servings


2 cups Kale Channe(black chickpea) soaked in water overnight

2 tsp Coriander powder(dhania)

1 1/2 tsp Red Chili powder

2 tsp Garam Masala

1 tsp Anardana powder(pomegranate seeds powder)

2 tbsp oil

2 tsp Cumin seeds(jeera)


Pressure cook the soaked chickpeas with salt till they are tender.Drain.

Heat Oil in a pan and add Cumin seeds.When they turn brown,add the chickpeas.Saute on medium heat tor 2-3 minutes.Add all the spices and mix very well to coat.

Cook the chickpeas till any water on them evaporates and they take on the taste and flavor of the Masalas.
