Yep. Another kala chana recipe.
Simple, healthy, tasty, filling and colourful. This delightful meal ticks all those boxes and is one of my faves to make too.
Ingredients are two cups of peeled and chopped butternut, 2 cups kala chana, one eggplant, two tomatoes, I small bunch of coriander,1 tablespoon ghee, 1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste, salt and pepper. For the spices, the whole spices are a teaspoon each of black mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, nigella seeds and fennel seeds. The ground spices are a teaspoon each of garam masala, ground Dhania jeera and 1/4 teaspoon of ground turmeric.
Boil the chickpeas till ready and set aside.
Add your onion and cook till soft, then add the ginger garlic paste then the eggplants.
It is not too spicy but very flavourful. You can cook earlier and let rest so the flavours can deepen further before serving.
I added some fresh chilli on top too but this is optional. This is an amazingly flavour filled vegetarian meal to add to your normal meal plan. It will leave you satisfied, is good to look at, easy to make, nutritious and tasty too.
Definitely worth a try.
