Green Chickpeas and Soya Curry

We always use dry brown and white chickpeas to make curry. But I like fresh green chickpeas most. In India we used to get that one but here its very hard to find fresh one, but there is always a way if there is a will so I get the frozen one. Its not that as good as fresh but hey, beggars are not choosers. I always keep that in my frozen and add it in greens or just make  Green Chana and Spring Onion subji. But I wanted to make something else this time so I go ahead and use another one of my favorite  Soya chunks and made this easy but fast and delicious curry, which perfect with rotis.

Ingredients :

2 cups of frozen green chickpeas
1/4 cup soaked soya chunks
1 white onion chopped
1 tomato chopped or 1 tbsp. tomato puree
1 tbsp. ginger, garlic , chili paste
1 tbsp. Red chili powder
1 tbsp. cumin - coriander powder
1 tsp. Turmeric powder
1 tsp. garam masala powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp. oil


Heat a pan, add oil in it.
Add onion and cook till its pink.
Add tomato puree , ginger garlic paste, all powder masala and cook till oil floats.
Add chana and soaked and squeezed soya granules in it.
Add cup of water and cook and cover till chana cook.
You can have gravy as per desired  so adjust the water quantity. I wanted dry one so I didn't add too much water in it.
Serve hot with rice or roti or puris.
