In this video, we learn how to make homemade Kala Channa. Ingredients you will need are: 2 c Kala Channa, 5 c water, 1 tbsp oil, 1/8 tsp asafoetida, 1/4 tsp haldi, 1 tsp minced ginger, 1 tsp minced garlic, 14 oz pureed tomato, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp red chili powder, 10 sprigs chopped cilantro and coriander leaves. First, soak your Kala Channa for at least 8 hours. Next, in a pressure cooker, add your Kala Channas with water and salt. Turn the pressure cooker on high then let simmer for 45 minutes. In a separate pan, heat oil and add asafoedtida, minced ginger, garlic and tomatoes. Mix this well then add salt. Once finished, take a potato masher and mash some channas in the slow cooker.
