How to make CHANA MADRA Recipe?
- Method :- Heat mustard oil in a pan on medium flame. When the oil is adequately heated, add jeera, asafoetida, black cardamom, cloves, black pepper, tej patta and cinnamon stick. Saute the spices for about a minute. In a bowl add curd then add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, grammasala, jeera powder, dhaniya powder and rice flour in a bowl and whisk it. Using plain flour is completely optional but it is added so that the curd does not split when it is added to the curry. Add this mixture to the pan and stir it continuously until it boils. Stirring is important to avoid the yogurt from breaking up or cuddles. Add cooked chickpeas and mix it well with the masala. Add salt, sauted dry fruits & desi ghee and Cook it for another 10 minutes until it is cooked and reaches the right consistency. Gravy thickens as it cools down.
