Sabji Channe Ki

Sabji Chaane ki

Celebrated Varalaksmi noomu Friday, its customary in our house to give kala channa as offering to Goddess Laksmi and then its distributed to the invitees in the evening.I think this is common in AP, so got few kids of channa as prasad as well.

Stumbled upon this recipe from Indira blog, made it a perfect choice of Sabji.However I did not have coconut milk as mentioned in the recipe so skipped it, however the sabji was very delicious and I am happy to find an alternative to cooking channa .


a cup of each kali channa & kabuli channa soaked overnight and boiled with salt
1 big onion chopped finely
2 small tomatoes
2 big tbsp cumin & corriander powder
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 cup coconut milk (optional)
1 tbsp jeera,mustard for thadka
few curry leaves

1. Boil channa ,make sure to keep a watch and not to let channa get mush ,also add salt while boiling
2. add a tbsp oil in a pan add ginger garlic paste, cumin & corriander powder fry a little
3. add cut onion and fry till onions turn translucent
4. now add tomatoes and fry well, add coconut milk (optional)
5. grind the above into a fine paste
6. In the same pan add a tbsp of oil add the above paste and add boiled channa
7. mix well and fry for about a minute or two
8. remove from heat garnish with corriander and add lemon if required

serve hot with rotis. Tasted great and was thoroughly enjoy .

Sreelu, your post reminded me of perantam and bommala koluvu for Sankranti - we used to get these if we attended those events. Often, they were not cooked, just soaked.
