Masaledaar Chana

on March 23, 2015

Masaledaar Chana” is my innovation from my “Chatpata Paneer” recipe 😛 with slight alterations. It makes a best starter or a side dish with rice or roti. Easy peasy recipe, Of course !! Am sooo lazy, so most of my recipes are quick and easy 😛

I made this on a weekend and served it as a side dish with Dal and Rice, It was an hearty meal, Well appreciated by my hubby and friends 😉

Here goes the recipe, Do give it a try, You wont be disappointed,


  • Kabuli chana – 1 cup (Soaked overnight)
  • Coriander powder – 1tbsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli powder – 1/2 tbsp
  • Kasoori methi – 1 tbsp (crushed between your palms)
  • Mango pickle – 1 tbsp (chopped finely)
  • Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp (for garnish)
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste


  • Cook the soaked chana for about 6 whistles in a pressure cooker. Drain and set aside
  • In a pan, Heat oil, Add the cumin seeds. Once its splutters, add the coriander, turmeric and chilli powder and fry for half a min, be careful not to burn the masala.
  • Now add chana, 1 cup of water and salt, and cook for about 5 min, until the chana is slightly dry. Now add the mango pickle, and mix well. Simmer for a minute more.
  • Switch off the gas, Add the kasoori methi and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with rice or roti.

Note : If you want it as a gravy, put in some more water, and do not cook till dry. Check the salt, as the mango pickle already has salt.
