Print this Recipe    Chana Masala

1 can garbanzo beans
1 big onion very finely chopped or processed in a food processor/grinder
1 inch piece of ginger grated
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp amchur powder (dried mango powder)
1/2 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste

Heat oil in a frying pan. Add chopped onions and fry until golden
brown. Add all the spices (except mango powder), crushed garlic
and grated ginger to it.

Fry for about two-three minutes. Add garbanzo beans, salt and mango
powder. Add about 1/2 cup of water and cook on low heat for about
15 minutes. This will give some time for garbanzo beans to absorb
all the spices.

Garam Masala
This can be bought ready made. The best way is to make it home.

1 small stick cinnamon
3 to 4 cloves
4 to 5 black pepper
1/2 tsp cummin seeds
1/2 tsp coriander seeds

Grind all the ingredients into powder.

This could be very spicy for people not used to spicy food. Reduce the
amount of cayenne pepper and garam masala as desired for less
spicy chana.
