Bread Chole

This ia a recipe that is meant for baturas.But this also goes well with bread,puttu,puri, rotis etc.Most of the times I serve it with bread ,hence the name.This is not the authentic chole recipe but it brings out the best of black chanas.Here's the recipe.
Black chana:1 cup
Red chillies:4
Cardamom:2 to 3 pods crushed
Coriander seeds:1 tbspn
Onion:1 big
Coconut:1 tspn(optional)
Mustard:1 tspn
Salt:as per taste

Soak chana overnight and cook in a pressure cooker adding salt.

In a pan add little oil,roast together coriander seeds,crushed cardamom and red chillies.Adjust the no: of red chillies with the amount of chana.Grind these adding little coconut(optional) ,one or two spoons cooked chana and water in which it is cooked.

Chop onions thinly.Heat oil in a pan,add mustard.As it splutters, add onions and saute.Once the onions turn transluscent add the paste, mix well and saute for a minute and then add the cooked chana.Adjust the salt.Boil till the gravy becomes a little bit thicker.Serve with bread,puttu,puris,rotis,appams,baturas etc.
