Chick Peas/ Chana - 800 grams  ( I used tinned ones you can boil the same in a pressure cooker)

Cumin Seeds - 1 teaspoon
Onion Large - 1
Green chilies - 3 (chopped)
Tomato large - 1 
Garam Masala - 2 teaspoon
Red chilli powder - 2 teaspoon ( may increase the amount for a hotter dish)
Chana Masala - 2 Tablespoon
Amchoor - 1/2 teaspoon
Tamarind pulp - 1/2 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 4 tablespoons
Sal to taste
Coriander leaves to garnish


  1. Take a deep frying pan and add oil to it, as it heats add cumin seeds and green chillies. Remove it from the flame and immediately add 1teaspoon red chilli powder followed by boiled chana.
  2. Mix the chana and then add remaining red chili powder, garam masala, chana masala, amchoor powder, salt and mix it.
  3. Now take the tamarind pulp and add a two table spoon of water to it so that it turns int a liquid. You can also soak it at home. Pour this liquid onto the chana and then add sugar to it. Mix well.
  4. Now place it back on the flame to evaporate any excess water and heating it moderately.
  5. Garnish with Coriander eat it with Chapattis


Diabetic people can use sweetener is place of sugar.
