What is hare chane ki sabji?

Green chickpea (hara chana/chole) cooked in spicy and scrumptious gravy is hare chane chane ki sabji. This healthy pea is available for a short time during the year, the fresh ones I am talking about. You can get the dry ones any time.  I love to make different recipes using hara chana. Not only because of the health benefits of hara chana but also because it gives a break from the regular gravies we generally make!

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Hare Chane ki Sabji recipe

Fresh green chickpea is necessary. I know that you know that we need green chickpea for the recipe but what I am trying to say is that the fresh chickpea should be fresh. So whenever you pick a pack from your sabji wala ask him to give you fresh ones. I have prepared no onion garlic recipe for hare chane ki sabji. But I made it quite peppery and toothsome with ginger, chilies and other spices. Generally, green chickpeas are made in combination with potatoes, but I have not added any. I did not feel the need for it.

Another recipe with hara chana is the distinct barfi, hare chane ki barfi. View the recipe here. Another chana gravy recipe is the kale chane ki sabji. View its recipe here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
