Kandheche pathi chakala/ spring onions cooked in spicy chana dal gravy

This is gravy composed of spring onions, chana dal and spices, the spring onions can also be replaced by normal onions (in that case the gravy is called as kandhe khaskhas, kandhe meaning onion) This gravy is an excellant combo for roti and is spicy too!!  So, why are you waiting, just see and cook too!! and it is a easy peesy to make!!

Ingredients required

So, it is one cup of spring onions, half a cup of chana dal, one tsp of ginger garlic paste and spice mix. 
Spice mix has 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garam masala, a pinch of turmeric powder, half tsp chilli powder, 1 tsp dhanya powder.


At first, pressure cook chana dal with a bit of haldi for two whistles.

Then in a vessel, add one tsp of oil and saute spring onions for fifteen minutes

Add one tsp of ginger-garlic paste and saute for 2-3 minute

Add our prepared spice mix to pressure cooked dal

Then add sauted spring onions too

 Pressure cook for one more whistle
And now you can serve in three ways
   1. Temper with rai and curry leaves
   2. Just add one tsp of oil for glazing and serve
   3. Add coriander leaves and one tsp of lime juice and serve
     I choosed last one :)

And our springonion curry is ready
