Chole - Channa Masala


2 cans Garbanzo Beans -- washed. You can also get the regular beans and soak them in water overnight
1/2 can Tomato Paste -- about 3 oz. I used the 6 oz can of the regular Hunts Tomato Paste
1 small Onion -- finely chopped
Channa Masala
Dhania Masala
Amchur Powder
Red Chilli Powder


In a large pan, heat oil and add the chopped onion.
Once the onion softens, add in the tomato paste and about 2 to 2 1/2 cups water, based on how think you like your gravy. Mix everything well until you get a gravy like consistency and add in the washed beans.
Cover and let cook until the beans are cooked and the gravy comes to a boil.
Now add in the turmeric, salt, red chilli powder, dhania powder, channa masala and amchur powder.
Mix everything well. I served it with roti, but it's great with rice too.
