Chana Stir fry Recipe

Chana or Black Bengal Gram is a versatile lentil. A variety of dishes can be made from it. Though a Chana Stir Fry can be made in a number of ways, my favourite one is with sautéed onions. I like it with a dash of lemon and a sprinkling of coriander leaves.

Ingredients :

  • 200 gms Chana/Black Bengal Gram
  • 2 large onions
  • 5 green chillies
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tbsps grated coconut
  • 3 tbsps oil
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • A pinch of Haldi /turmeric
  • Salt.
  • Coriander leaves

Method :

Wash and soak the Chana for eight hours. Pressure cook it with salt. Chop onions and green chillies fine. Heat oil. Drop in the mustard and after it splutters add the green chillies, Curry leaves and onions. Roast till translucent. Add the Haldi. Toss. Drop in the boiled Chana. Adjust salt. Cook till all the water is absorbed. Tip in the coconut and mix. Heat well. Switch off. Drizzle with lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves.
