Curry Leaves - Few
Coriander Leaves - Few

Jeera - 1/2 spoon
Bay Leaf - 1
Pattai - 1 (Small)
Cloves - 2
Mace - 1
To Grind:
Grated Coconut - 1/4 cup
Jeera - 1 spoon
  • Pressure cook the soaked channa and keep it aside.
  • Grind the grated coconut and jeera into thick paste and keep aside.
  • Heat a pan, add oil to it and fry the spices given in " For Seasoning".
  • Add onion to this and saute until it turns golden brown.
  • To this add tomato and saute until it becomes soft.
  • Then add Ginger - Garlic paste and saute until you get a good aroma.
  • Now add all the curry leaves and masala powders to it with cooked channa and required salt.
  • Mix it well so that the masala will be coated to the cooked channa nice and leave it for few mints.
  • Now add the grinded coconut paste to this and mix it well for few mints until the gravy becomes thick.
