I tried making curry using chickpeas and brinjal and it came out really well. Chickpeas are highly nutritious and have maximum of 25% protein. Chickpeas have low glycemic index values and therefore suit well for diabetics and people who want to overcome weight gain problems.
So here is the recipe:
250 gms of violet brinjal
100 gms of white chickpeas (Kabuli channa)
One medium sized onion
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp asafoetida
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp daniya powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Salt as required
1 tsp oil
Few coriander leaves
Wash and soak kabuli channa over night.
Put channa in a pressure cooker with enough salt and water and cook till it becomes soft.
Cut brinjal and onion into thin strips.
Cut tomatoes into small pieces.
In a non stick frying pan, put one tsp oil.
Add jeera and let it splutter.
Add chopped onion and fry till it becomes soft.
Add chopped brinjal, turmeric powder, asafoetida and enough salt.
Fry till the brinjal gets cooked.
Add chopped tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are well blended with brinjal.
Add red chilli powder and daniya powder and fry for a while.
Add the cooked channa and fry till it gets mixed with brinjal.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with phulka rotis.
