Garam Masala Chaana chaat



Scroll  down for english translation

Kender I det at man glemmer nogle af de retter man selv lavede tideliger fordi man vil prøve andre og ny ting. Mine venner og familie elskede min stærk og syrligt kikærte ret med masser af  garam masala, men jeg blev lidt træt at lave den og den blev glemt i lang tid. I starten brugte jeg den som en curry ret til naan og sener blev det til en snack ( chaat ).  Efter lang tid er jeg begyndt at lave den igen bare lidt anderledes og som tilbehør til kød. Jeg bruger mindre mængde løg mindre tomater men krydderi mængden er det samme. 


 til ca. 4-5 personer
Ingredienser:


440 gr kogte kikærter
350 gr kogte kartoffler, skråret i tern. De skal ikke være helt færdig kogte, der skal være en lille smule bid.
2 mellem stor tomater eller 6- 8 cherry tomater, skåret i tynde skriver.
2 mellem store løg, skåret i tynde skriver. 
1 tsk spids cumin frø
1 tsk rød chili pulver
2- 3 spsk garam masala.  Jeg brugte 3 spsk.
1- 1½  tsk salt eller efter smag
1 tsk chaat masala, kan undlades ( kan købes i de pakistanske forretninger )
4-5 frisk grøn chili fint hakket.
 saft af en hel citron saft 
2 spsk olie
1 spsk frisk grofthakket koriander. 


1. Varm olie på en dyb pande eller gryde, kom spids kommen frøene i. Efter 1 minut kom de fint hakket chili i og steg hurtigt et minut, tilsæt kikærteren , rød chili pulver, salt og steg vidrer nogle minutter 2-3 under omrøring på høj varme.
 2. Tilsæt løg og kartoffler og garam masala og steg igen under omrøring ca 5 minutter mere. Check om kartofflerne er helt gennem kogte. 
3. Tilsæt citron saft , rør rundt så den bliver godt blandet sammen med kikærterne. Sluk for komfuret. Tilsæt tomaterne og de frisk hakket korainder blade. Læg låg på og lad gryden står på komfuret, tomaterne vil blive let bløde af varmen. Drys med chaat masala inden servering.


Den her kikærte chaat kan bruges som snack, varm salat, en lille forret og som tilbehør til kød.  Have en god uge.

 You know over the years you sometime forget about the things you used to make earlier, because to want to try other and new things. This is also what happend to my chickpea dish. I call this recipe with the use of lots and lots garam masala my own invention. In the beginning I used this as curry dish with naan and later as snack. After long time I am starting to make my garam masala Chaana  Chaat again, this time as side dish and with less onions and tomatoes but the same dose of spices.


for 4-5 persons
Ingredients:


440 gr boiled chickpeas
350 gr boiled  potatoes, diced. They should not to soft but have a bite left.
2 medium sized tomatoes or 6-8 Cherry tomatoes,  cut in thin slices
2 medium sized onion , also cut in thin slices.
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp salt or after taste.
2-3 tbsp garam masala, I used 3.
1 tsp chaat masala, can be bought in pakistani food shops. (optional)
juice of one whole lemon
4-5 green chili , chopped finelly
2 tbsp coarsly chopped  fresh coriander leafs.
2 tbs oil.


1. Heat the oil on a deep pan or pot, add the cumin seed and when they start to crack add fresh chili, stir and fry for 1 minut. Add chickepeas, red chili powder, salt and fry for 2-3 minuts more on hight heat while stirring.
2. Add the onions , potatoes and garam masala and keep frying on high heat for 5 minuts. Check to see if the potatoes are cooked through. 
3. Add lemon juice and mix well. Turn of the heat, add tomatoes and coriander leafs. Cover the pot/pan with a lid and let the pot stay on the stove. The tomatoes will get soft from the heat from the chick peas.
Sprinkle with chaat masala before servering if useing chaat masalah.


This chickpea chaat can be used as salad, snack, starter or side dish to meat.
Enjoy and have a great week
