Kala Chana Pulao


This is one of my favorite vegetarian pulaos , I love the bite of the chanas and keep the recipe light .
1 Cup Rice - Soak rice in buttermilk / lassi to which you have added salt - rice tastes amazing ( 30 minutes )
1/4th Cup Chana - How much you add depends upon you .
1 Onion Pureed.
1 Tablespoon Ginger Minced.
1 Teaspoon Jeera.
!" Cinnamon.
1-2 Green Cardamon.
1 Tej Putta / Bay Leaf.
2 Black Cardamon
Black Peppercorns to taste .
Salt.
Chilies.
Ghee.
Soak chanas in water to which you add the bay leaf and black cardamon . Soak in just enough water so that the flavors of whole spice is strong.After 2-3 hours pressure cook one whistle , strain.
Heat ghee , add whole spice , splutter till aromatic , add onion paste and ginger , cook till onions begin to lightly brown , now add the strained chanas along with salt and chilies , bhuno for 4-5 minutes , then add the strained rice , saute a minute or two , add just enough water to cook the rice.Aromatic and delicious !
