Here's a simple recipe for Roopak's Pindi Chana Masala:


  • 2 Cups dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 2 Large onions, finely chopped
  • 3 Tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 4-5 Cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-Inch piece of ginger, minced
  • 2-3 Green chilies, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 2 Teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 Teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1 Teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 Teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 Teaspoon dry mango powder (amchur)
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  • Soak the dried chickpeas in water overnight or for at least 6-8 hours. Drain the soaked chickpeas and rinse them thoroughly.
  • In a pressure cooker, add the soaked and rinsed chickpeas with enough water to cover them. Pressure cook for about 15-20 minutes or until they are cooked through and soft. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet or pan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  • Add the minced garlic, ginger, and green chilies. Sauté for another couple of minutes until the raw smell disappears.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes along with salt and cook until they turn mushy and oil starts to separate from the masala.
  • Add the coriander powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, and garam masala. Mix well and cook for a minute.
  • Add the cooked chickpeas along with any remaining cooking water from the pressure cooker. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Mash some of the chickpeas lightly with the back of the spoon to thicken the gravy.
  • Add the dry mango powder (amchur) and adjust salt and spices according to your taste. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the flavors meld together.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with rice, roti, or naan. Serve lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the chana masala for extra tanginess.
