I already posted CHOLE MASALA in North Indian style and this one I learnt from my mom, typical south Indian-Tamil Nadu style. This is very easy to prepare yet tasty too. My mom prepares this for puri, chappati and we also love to have this as Bread chenna, samosa chenna etc.
Kabuli chenna 2 cup
Green chilli 3 to 4
Red chilli 2
Garlic 5 pods
Ginger one inch
Anni seeds 1 tsp
Poppy seeds ½ tsp
Cinnamon ½ inch
Cumin seeds ½ tsp
Black pepper ½ tsp
Grated coconut 2 tsp
Coriander ½ bunch and a few for garnishing
Garam masala/Chenna masala 1 tsp
Turmeric a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil for tampering
Soak Chenna over night or abt 8 hrs. Pressure cook by adding half salt to it. Keep aside.
Grind all above said ingredients to a thick paste except masala, turmeric and salt.
Take a pan heat abt 2 to 3 tsp of oil. Pop up mustard/cumin/anni seeds. Then add the masala paste in to it. Saute for few mts until the raw smell goes.
Add turmeric, salt and masala powder. Mix well. If the paste is too thick add water and let it boil for few mts till the aroma of masala spreads. Use the water which we have used for cooking the chenna.
Add cooked Chenna and combine well and allow to boil for few more mts.
Garnish with some coriander leaves and serve hot.
Accompanies very well with Parathas/chapatti/bread/Chenna samosa.
Enjoy the Hot and Spicy Chenna with your evening snacks/dinner.
This is my daughter's favrt dish.. she will have one more paratha/chapathi with this masala. I used to prepare this especially for her to stuff more chapati atleast twice in a month.
