  • 1 tsp chana masala

  • 1-2tbsp tomato paste

Nani Says: Turn medium sauce pan on to low heat. Add oil and onions, stir. Add GGC, stir until onions are translucent. Add tomato and salt, cover and cook 3-4min or until tomatoes start to break down. Add chickpeas, 1 tbsp water & tomato paste, stir & cover and cook for another 2-3 minuets. Add chana masala and 2 tbsp water, stir and then add sugar and more salt. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. The curry is done with then oil begins to separate from the sauce. Give final story and garnish with fresh coriander.

Enjoy with rice or bhakri's/roti's. Or both.
