Channa Masala

Hi all, 

Today I will be sharing a very simple and healthy recipe. 


Kabul Channa – 200 grams

Onion – 1 (thinly sliced)

Tomatoes – 2 finely chopped

Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Chilly powder – 1/2 tsp

Garam masala – 1/4 tsp

Cumin powder – 1/2 tsp

Salt as per taste

Cinnamon stick – 1

Bay leaf – 1

Jeera – 1 tsp

Oil to temper


Soak Channa overnight or atleast for 8 hours. It would have doubled in size. Wash Channa thoroughly and add 2 cups of water and salt and pressure cook for atleast 10 whistles. Channa should be soft. 


Take a kadai. Add oil, jeera, cinnamon and bay leaf and sauté till u start getting a nice aroma. Now add onion and ginger garlic paste and saute till onions turn translucent. Add tomatoes and sauté till they become mushy. 

Now add turmeric powder, chilly powder, cumin powder and garam masala along with little salt just for this masala (Remember we have already added salt in the Channa). Give a good mix and add the cooked Channa along with the cookin liquor. Close the lid and let it cook on medium flame for 10 mins. Now switch off the gas and garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves. 

Yummy Channa Masala is ready.

Serve with Hot Batura or pooris or jeera rice along with chopped onion and lemon wedge. Yumm.. 🤤

    1. No it wont.. these are all tried and tested recipes.. kabul channa takes longer to cook.. so 10 whistles will make it soft and combine well as a gravy
