Instructions
  1. Soak 1 cup dried white chickpeas in enough water overnight for for 7 to 8 hours. Drain and rinse the soaked chickpeas in water and keep aside.
  2. Take the chickpeas along with 1 teaspoon salt, cardamoms, cinnamon, 3 dried amla pieces, bay leaves and ginger paste in the pressure cooker. Add 3 cups water and stir.
  3. Cover tightly and pressure-cook the chickpeas for 10 to 12 whistles.
  4. The chickpeas should be cooked well.
  5. Discard the softened amla pieces or tea bag and keep the cooked chickpeas along with the stock aside.
  6. In another pan, heat 2 tablespoons oil and add ½ cup chopped onion.
  7. Stir and sauté on a low to medium flame, till the onions are translucent or light golden.
  8. Then add 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste. Stir and sauté for a few seconds till the raw aroma of ginger-garlic goes away.
  9. Add ¾ cup chopped tomatoes.
  10. Stir and sauté the tomatoes till they soften.
  11. Add the spice powders - coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder, garam masala and turmeric powder. Stir and sauté for a minute.
  12. Add the cooked chole along with its spices. Stir well.
  13. Then add 2 or 3 slit green chilies. Stir.
  14. Add 1 cup of the stock and season with salt as required.
  15. On a medium flame, bring the gravy to a simmer.
  16. The gravy should thicken slightly. Mash a few chickpeas with the back of the spoon. This helps in thickening the gravy.
  17. Now add paneer cubes, kasuri methi and amchur powder.
  18. Stir and simmer the paneer for about 2 minutes on a low flame.
  19. Switch off the flame and add 1 or 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves and some ginger julienne. You can also garnish with the coriander leaves and ginger julienne instead of adding them.
  20. Stir finally and serve.
