Kabuli channa- Garlic Kuzhambu

This is another innovation out of the kuzhambu paste - sans coconut !! Please check out the recipe for making this kuzhambu's paste from my other post - http://indulgeinthetaste.blogspot.com/2009/11/melagu-kuzhambu.html, omitting the coconut and complementing with one more tbsp of channa dhal.

Ingredients: Serves 2-3

Kabuli channa - 150 g soaked overnight with 300 ml water
Garlic - 10 pods peeled
Tamarind pulp - 150 ml
Kuzhambu paste - 3-4 tbsp
Urad dhal & Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Water - for consistency
Oil - 3 tbsp
Fried curry leaves - to garnish


Heat a kadai and add the oil. Saute the Urad dhal and Mustard seeds. Add the garlic and drained kabuli channa and fry for a min. Add the masala powders (turmeric, chilli & Coriander). Add the tamarind pulp, salt and water to get a watery consistency. Cover with a lid and cook till the channa is done. Then, add the kuzhambu paste and cook over medium - high flame for 10 mins. Garnish with fried curry leaves and serve hot with rice. I made the rice, a little watery as you can see in the pic :) And, a video to show the final stage..
