Sukhe Kale Chane (Dry Black Chickpeas)

sukhe kale chane

Sukhe kale chane ki recipe comes straight from my mom's kitchen. It brings back memories of childhood days when she used to prepare them on ashtami along with puri and sooji ka halwa for kanjak. It was to be distributed to the little girls who used to visit us on this day.
Recipe sukhe kale chane
2 cups kale chane (black chickpeas)
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp amchoor (dried mango powder)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp oil
1. Soak kale chane overnight, drain. Place kala chana along with enough water and salt in a pressure cooker. Let 1 whistle come, then turn the heat to medium. Pressure cook for 20 minutes in total. When the pressure drops down, open and strain. You can have the remaining chana water as soup as it is very nutritious.
2. Heat oil in a kadhai or a pan and add cumin seeds. When they change color, add kale chane and all the spices. Roast for 4-5 minutes on a medium heat, uncovered. Turn off the heat and garnish sukhe kale chane with coriander leaves.
