The recipe for Chickpeas cooked with Chickpea Flour a/k/a Chola (Chana Masala) is a stroke of authentic genius; the roasted chickpea flour, also known as besan or gram flour, wows as both thickening and flavoring agent.
Below, we carefully fried the chickpea flour in oil laced with toasted cumin seeds and asafetida.
|Without the usual largesse of tomatoes and sweet fried onions in most chickpea curries, Manjula's version is a purist's delight. Lack of acidity combined with a profound saltiness make the curry perfect over rice and served alongside tangy yogurt.|
