Raga Chana this recipe is related to my husband childhood memory dayz.When he was staying in Rambha,Odisha there in one street shop it is sold and its his favourite.So thought to make his sweet memory more sweeter by making this in home.Raga Chana is made up of matar i.e white peas masala and topped with ganthia.
The ganthia recipe I have already uploaded in my channel…I share the link below
The ganthia is so easy to prepare infact this time my daughter made this…as summer holidayz going on here.
Soaking Time 6 to 7 hours
Preparation Time 10 min
Cooking Time 12-15 min
Serving Persons 4
1 cup white peas or matar(soaked for 6 to 7 hours)
2 medium onion chopped
3 green chili slitted
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
½ tsp cumin powder
½ tsp red chili powder
1 tbs mustard oil
¼ tsp cumin seeds
a pinch of asafoetida
1 tbsp of chopped coriander rleaves
Salt to taste
Ganthia for garnishing
Boil the soaked matar in sufficient water with salt,turmeric powder for 12 to 15 min.
Strain the water and let it cool down little.
It should be retain its shape…not fully mash texture.
Then heat oil in a pan,add cumin seeds and asafoetida.
Now add ginger-garlic paste,green chili.
Next add chopped onion with a pinch of salt so that onion is cooked faster.
When onion turns to light brown colour add all spices to this.
Add little water so that spices cooked well and not get burnt.
Next add the cooked peas(chana)to this.
Add the masala water which is used to boil the peas.
Mix it well and let it cook for 4 to 5 min in low flame,sos that all masalas well absorbed,
Add besan so that all masalas coated properly.
Finally add chopped coriander leaves and mix it well.
Enjoy this raga chana topped with ganthia…
You can make this masala with chole or kale chana also.
In Rambha it is served with ganthia…you can serve with any farsan or skip this.
But with ganthia the combo is just awesome.
If you don’t prefer the flavour of mustard oil you can replace with normal cooking oil.
