Chana Masala

I got this recipe from my aunt who is an expert in cooking. She simply mixes and matches spices and vegetables and out comes a wonderful dish. This dish actually proves that. Enjoy this with rotis,rice or in rolls or sandwiches. This does not requires any onions so out goes chopping. Here's the recipe

White Chana-1/2 cup
Tomato puree/crushed-1tbspn
Ginger -1/2 inch chopped finely
Cumin -1/2 tspn
Green chillies - 2 small (Adjust with chilly powder)
Chilli powder :1/2 tspn
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tspn

Soak chana overnight. Cook the chana with salt in a pressure cooker. Heat oil.Add cumin seeds,ginger,slit green chillies and chopped or pureed tomato.Stirfry till oil comes.Add cooked chana,chilli powder and turmeric powder. Adjust salt. Serve with rotis/or in sandwiches by making it a dry curry. If you want thick gravy add more tomato puree and/or water and adjust the powders.
