How to make Kabuli Chana recipe?

For the recipe with Kabuli chana, I have used canned chickpeas. It reduces the effort and time of preparation for the recipe. In the UK, it is easily available in any supermarket. But I know in many places canned chickpeas are not easily available. For the people of those places, I will explain here how to cook dry chickpeas.

  1. First wash the chickpeas nicely.
  2. Add enough water and soak the chickpeas for overnight or 8-10 hours. I add 2½ cups of water for 1 cup chickpeas.


  3. Wash the chickpeas once more and transfer them into a cooker.
  4. Add water, salt and close the lid.

  5. Cook it in medium flame till 4-5 whistles.
  6. Allow the pressure to settle down.

For the Kabuli chana recipe, I have added potatoes. Bengalis are fond of potatoes and most of the vegetarian dishes are incomplete without it. It gives a nice texture and nostalgic feel to the dish.

To prepare any vegan food of India, it is very important to play cleverly with the spices to induce flavours to the dish. I have added whole spices into the oil to make the dish aromatic.

For Kabuli Chana Recipe Bengali Style recipe, very limited amount of spices has been used. It elevates the authenticity of Bengali cuisine. Other than whole spices, I have added small amount of cumin powder, coriander powder to flavour up the dish. At the end, I have sprinkled some roasted cumin powder. It makes the dish smell heavenly.

For the recipe with Kabuli chana, I have added very less amount of water because it is a Kabuli chana dry recipe. Bengalis love to add little bit of sweetness to the curries to make it taste perfectly balanced. I have added small amount of sugar which goes great with the tanginess of lemon juice.

For the chole recipe easy, I have used onions, ginger garlic paste and tomatoes. I have not used any dairy product like clarified butter (Ghee) or yogurt to stick to vegan. On another note, they don’t go with the recipe too.

Many vegan snacks recipes have already been shared in my previous posts. You may like these recipes too.
