Aloo Chana Subzi / Chana Aloo Subzi / Aloo Chana / Potato & Chickpeas Cooked in Tangy Tomato Sauce – Sidedish for Roti or Rice (No Onion / No Garlic – Jain Style)

Potatoes and Chana are my favorite one..So think about this dish, it is my absolute favorite one..This has some unusual flavours going through it. I think its from the amchoor and kasuri methi leaves..This has a absolute northindian flavour to it..And BTW I love Northindian foods..You can see a whole lot of recipes recipes right here..

This can be served with plain white rice, roti or puri..My favorite is with rice..And in the picture, if you are wondering, what is the green dish in the side. It is spinach masiyal.. I have posted the recipe of it in my other blog..Please check it here..

  24. This is perfect for me and my family, as we don't use onions or garlic.Chana is my favourite too!

  25. I've had this in an Indian restaurant before, but never tried it at home. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  26. Like the idea ofcooking the chickpeas without onion and garlic , a must try definitely

  27. Garam masala should be added just before the end say 2 mins before u r done with the curry. Only then it brings nice aroma out of it.give it a try
