Chickpeas Spinach Curry - ಕಾಲು ಸಪ್ಪು ಪಲ್ಯ

Sunday, February 13, 2011

A simple and easy to prepare dish that combines two of my favorite ingredients - chickpeas and spinach! 

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Serves: 2-3 people

You will need:
  1. Chickpeas - 2 cups 
  2. Spinach - 1 bunch - chopped
  3. Onions - 1 no. - chopped
  4. Garlic - 2 cloves - diced
  5. Yogurt - 2 tbsp 
  6. Garam Masala
  7. Dhaniya/Coriander powder
  8. Cooking Oil (Use olive oil for extra flavour)
  9. Salt 
To cook:
  • Soak chickpeas overnight and pressure cook them with some salt. You could also use canned chickpeas otherwise
  • Cook the chopped spinach in water for about 5 min and keep it aside
  • Heat oil in a skillet and add chopped onions and garlic and saute until brown
  • Add garam masala, dhaniya powder and salt and mix well
  • To this, add yogurt, spinach and cooked chickpeas
  • Add some water to get a gravy like consistency
  • Serve hot with Rice or Chapatis
