How to Make Kadalai kurma

  • Soak the black chickpeas overnight and then pressure-cook it with enough water and salt for up to 2 whistles.
  • Once cooked, drain it out and keep it aside. In the meantime, fry all the ingredients mentioned in the masala ingredients in about a tsp of oil.
  • Let it cool down a bit and then grind it into a smooth paste adding about 1/2 a cup of water.
  • In a cooker, add about a tbsp of oil and fry the sliced onions until translucent.
  • Now add the tomatoes, turmeric powder and salt.
  • Be careful when adding the salt, because the chickpeas are already cooked with salt.
  • So add just enough salt for the gravy.
  • Once the tomatoes are mushy and cooked, add the potatoes and the ground paste and fry for couple of minutes.
  • Now add the cooked chickpeas and add about a cup of water to it.
  • Cook it for up to 3 more whistles. Once the steam releases, open the cooker and garnish with cilantro.
