Chole or Chick Peas Biriyani

                This recipe just came through my mind when I saw soaked channa. The result of the recipe was awesome. It was flavourful and rich in taste just like any biriyani. So here comes the recipe.
Basmati rice
1 cup
Soaked Chickpeas/Channa
1 cup
1 big sliced
1 sliced
Green Chillies
3-4 slit lengthwise
Chilli powder
1.5 tbsp
Coriander powder
1 tbsp
Garam Masala
½ tbsp
Cinnamon stick
1 inch piece
Bay leaf
Cardamom and cloves
2 each crushed
Coriander and mint leaves
Chopped to garnish
Ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp
Salt to taste and oil as needed

1.       Clean and soak the basmati rice for atleast 30 mins.
2.       Pressure cook the channa/chick peas with little salt and keep it aside.
3.       Heat oil in a pan and add the bay leaf, cloves, cardamom, and then add the onion and sauté till it turns transparent.
4.       Then add the ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell goes. Then add the tomato, fry till it turns mushy. Add the masala powders and fry it their raw smell goes. Then add the cooked channa and rice and water ( I used 1:1.5 ratio, depends on the variety you use).
5.       Allow to boil, then close the lid of the cooker and cook it for 10 mins on low flame. Once the pressure is released, garnish with coriander leaves and serve with any raita.
