How to make Chole Capsicum Masala

  1. Soak cashew nuts in warm water for 12-15 minutes. Heat oil in a pan. Add sliced onions and cook until golden brown.
  2. Add garlic paste and saute for 1 minute. Next add the cubed capsicum pieces. Saute for 2-3 minutes
  3. Then add cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and chili powder. Fry for a minute, taking care not to burn. Now add the tomato sauce / puree and boiled chickpeas along with 2 cup of water.
  4. Let this mixture come to boil and then simmer for 5 minutes until the flavors mix together. Meanwhile, make a paste of soaked cashew nuts.
  5. Add the cashew paste to the curry along with salt. Simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add kasoori methi and remove from flame.
  6. Serve this creamy and delicious chana capsicum masala curry hot with onion rings as garnishing as side dish for rotis / paratha / any pulao !

My Tip:

Don’t boil the curry too long after adding the cashew paste, just bring to a slow simmer. 4-5 tbsp cream can be used instead of cashew paste to thicken the gravy. Instead of garlic paste, ginger garlic paste can also be added.
