Hello everyone 

Now a days I am sharing some simple day to day recipes but tempting too. We used to cook chhole occasionally but today I am sharing its sabji (curry) recipe. It can be prepared in minimum time and with less spices than used in chhole, yet you will love to relish on this finger licking dish. For Kanya Pujan during Navratri , we used to offer halwa, poori and chane ki sabji to kanyas. You can use this recipe to make chane , just skip onion and garlic. Step wise recipe of the same is given below , hope you all will like it.


Serves: 4-5
Time: 30 mins


1 1/2 cup boiled chickpeas 
4-5 medium potatoes, boiled
2 medium size onions, sliced
2-3 green chilies 
1 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 big tomato, finely chopped or puréed 
2 tsp coriander powder 
1 1/2 Chana or chhole masala
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp chaat masala ( optional)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafetida ( heeng)
1 bay leaf 
1/4 cup green coriander leaves, finely chopped 
Salt to taste


First of all grind sliced onions, green chilies and ginger garlic paste together to form paste. 

Peel and break potatoes in small pieces.
Heat oil in a wok, add asafetida, cumin seeds and bay leaf. Let cumin seeds crackle then add chopped onions. 

Fry till golden then add coriander powder, Garam masala, turmeric powder and chhole or Chana masala, saute for a minute. Then add prepared onion paste. Fry till aromatic and it starts leaving oil. 

Now add chopped or puréed tomatoes and salt . Cook till tomatoes become mushy then add broken potatoes. 

Fry for 2-3 mins then add boiled chickpeas along with water. Add water as per your preference of curry consistency.

 Adjust salt and let it boil. Now cover and simmer for 5-6 mins. Now add chopped coriander leaves and chaat masala. Mix well and done. 

Your simple yet yummy curry is ready to serve with poori or rice.

If preparing this for Navratri Kanya bhoj then skip onions and garlic.
You can also skip potatoes if not like. You can use any chickpea, black or white. I used white one.

This is very simple preparation with great taste, anyone can try easily. Hope you all will like this recipe and definitely try it once. Please pour your valuable comments and suggestions here,they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
