Hare Chane ki Sabzi

BM # 65
Week: 2, Day : 2
Theme: One veggie cooked in 3 ways

For the second day with cooking one vegetable in three ways I have a simple yet flavorful curry made from these fresh green Channa. The green Channa is a winter supply and I have this post from my drafts. Since I made it in winters I served this with rice and radish and chilly ginger pickle, which are a winter specialty too. These Channa are made in a typical Punjabi style.

Hare Chane ki Sabzi

1 cup fresh green channa
2 onions, finely chopped
2 flakes garlic
A small piece ginger
2 tomatoes
1/2 tsp red chilly powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/8 tsp Garam masala
Salt to taste

Heat 2-4 tsp oil in a pressure cooker.
Add the onions , garlic and ginger.
Cook till the onions turn pink.
Add tomatoes.
Simmer the gas and cook till soft and mushy.
Switch off the gas and let the mix cool.
Blend this mixture to a smooth paste and return back to the pressure cooker.
Add all dry spices and the Channa.
Cook for a while till all the moisture has dried up.
Add water and check consistency.
Pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.
Serve hot with rice.
