The secret to preparing this dish is using Roasted Geera (Cumin). The flavour is very different.

1 pk. Channa (Chick Peas or Garbanzos)
1 large onion chopped.
5 cloves garlic minced
Salt to taste
1 tsp. Hot pepper sauce
1 tbsp. ground cumin (Roasted)
4 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp curry powder
3 pints salted water


Soak channa in water overnight. Wash and drain and put into a pressure cooker. Add 3 pints salted water and pressure for 30 minutes. Drain and set aside. In a wok or large saucepan heat the oil then stir fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes. Add the cumin, curry powder and pepper sauce. Stir twice then pour in the channa. Adjust seasonings to taste. Continue to stir fry for a few minutes until the onion is cooked.
