Recipe: Chana Jor Garam

1 cup Black Gram
2 pinches Soda Bicarb
Peanut Oil to deep fry
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp Garam Masala


Lemon Juice
Onion (finely chopped)
Chaat Masala
Green Chili (finely chopped)

How to make Chana Jor Garam:

Wash and keep the black grams soaked overnight in plenty of water and soda. The next morning, drain the liquid and spread the black grams on a thick towel to remove excess water.
With a pestle or a small grinding stone, flatten each chana or gram.
Now heat oil in a frying pan, add a handful of the flattened chana and fry till it turns crispy and a bit white in colour.
Remove the fried chana from the pan and put it on a paper napkin to soak excess oil. Repeat this step for all the chickpeas.
Transfer fried grams to a large plate. Sprinkle salt, garam masala and toss to coat evenly.
Season the cooked food as per your taste before serving.
