Channa Korma Curry

Happy New Year's Potluck

Getting ready for a New Year's Day potluck, I was given the task of making a gluten-free and vegetarian meal. I've made my Channa Masala so many times recently, I didn't want to do it again. The problem was, chickpeas had to be the protein.

I then dug through my existing recipes and decided to make a variation of my Chicken Korma. I'd double the sauce and swap out the chicken for the legumes.

Channa Korma Curry
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tbsp garlic
  • 3 tbsp ginger
  • 6 cardamom pods
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cup yoghurt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cans chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  1. Heat oil and fry the onions for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add the cardamom, cinnamon, tomato sauce and yogurt and stir.
  4. Add the chickpeas and bring to a boil.
  5. Simmer on medium-low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Reduce to low, add lemon juice and raisins and let simmer for another 10 minutes.
