How I Do it :

Boil  Kabuli  channa with 3 cups water and ½ tsp salt     

Drain the water from the boiled Kabuli Channa

In a wok, heat oil and add the bay leaf and cumin seeds

When the cumin seeds splutter, add the onions , tomato puree and salt ( do remember we have boiled the Kabuli Channa in salt water , so you may want to reduce the salt accordingly).

Cook for 5 minutes in medium fire till the oil starts collecting at the sides.

Add the green chilli and red chilli powder .

Add 3 cups water and cook for 15 minutes in low fire.

With a ladle mash some of the Kabuli Channa.

Add the Boiled Potato and cook for 5 min under cover.

Remove from fire

Garnish with coriander leaves and chopped onions.

 This is an independent snack and can also be server with toasted bread or chapathi.
