  • 1 cup Hara Chana/Choliye ( outside India you will get this in the frozen section of your local I find grocery store).
  • 4 Potato – medium size cut into 2cm cubes
  • 4 Whole dry red chili
  • 4 Green chili – slit length wise
  • 1 Ginger – inch finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp Asafetida
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1 tsp Garam masala (I have used Everest Garam masala)
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder
  • ½ cup Coriander leaves – finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Mustard oil or any oil


  1. Heat a kadai add oil, whole dry red chili, cumin seeds, asafetida, finely chopped ginger and green chilies and saute on low heat for 2 to 3 till the raw smell of ginger goes away. Now add potatoes and mix.
  2. Add salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder.Mix everything well.
  3. Add hara chana and saute again. Cover and cook for 10 to 12 minutes. Keep stirring in between so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. I added ¼ cup of water as I felt the masala was sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Mix well, garnish with coriander leaves and serve with roti or paratha.Hara Chana Subzi Image
