Hare channe ka Kurma

A couple of days back i purchased frozen green chick peas and decided to create a preperation to eat with rotis… traditionally the green / dried dark brown chick peas have been used in south India for ‘chundal’ purposes..so this was something completely my experiment…



Green chickpeas: 250 gms
Salt to taste
Tomato: 2 nos medium sized
Oil: 2 tsp
corriander leaves for garnish

Kurma mixture paste:
Grated Coconut: 200 gms
Onions: 1 nos med sized
Dhania seeds: 2 tsp
jeera: 2tsp
saunf / fennel seeds: 2 tsp
Red chillies: according to taste
salt to taste
oil: 2 tsp


1. Cook the green chick peas seperately in a kadai or microwave.
2. Take a kadai and heat oil and add the jeera, dhania seeds and saunf and saute …
3. Add the onions, red chillies, some salt and saute.
4. Once the onions are light brown in colour, add grated coconut and saute till the whole misture is medium brown in colour…
5. In the kadai, now add the cooked chick peas, turmeric powder, salt and cook for another 5 more minutes
6. Add finely diced tomatoes and let it simmer with a lid on top of the kadai till the tomatoes get cooked..(ensure that the tomatoes do not get squashed while turning the curry)
7. Garnish and serve with rotis…
