Recipe for Kalay Chola

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups dry black garbanzo beans (kala channa)
  • water to cover
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red chilli pepper
  • 4 dried red chilli peppers (optional)
  • water as needed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

Cooking Directions

Place garbanzo beans in a large bowl. Pour enough water over the beans to cover by several inches.

Soak 8 hours to overnight. Rinse and drain the garbanzo beans thoroughly.

Combine garbanzo beans, 3 cups water, tomatoes, 1 finely chopped onion, jalapeno pepper, vegetable oil, salt, turmeric, ground red chilli pepper, and dried whole Chiles in a large pot over medium-high heat; bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the garbanzo beans are tender, 3 to 4 hours, adding water as needed to keep about 1 inch of liquid at the bottom of the pot.

Garnish with cilantro and 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion to serve.
