Kabuli Chana Stir Fry

Friday, November 26, 2010

My Dad got me a Tarla Dalal cookbook a few days ago. The recipes were very simple & it had some lovely food pictures too. I tried this Kabuli Chana Stir Fry from the cookbook & I was quite pleased with the results.

This is very similar to the Curried Chickpeas that I had made long ago. What I loved, is the addition of crisp potatoes & Chana Masala powder. Its almost like a dry version of choley, but with a nice twist.
