Chane Ghashi with kadgi (Chick peas with raw jackfruit in coconut gravy)  

Posted by Foodie in , , ,

Chane ghashi is one of the most popular konkani dish. It is always on the menu, be it for a wedding or for dinner after a function at the devasthan (temple). The same dish is prepared with roasted coconut( soyi bhajjile chane ghashi) and it tastes entirely different. I will try to post that recipe soon.
What you will need:
1 cup chick-peas ( soaked overnight )
1 can raw jackfruit ( you can use potatoes or yam (soornu) instead)
1 cup grated coconut, fresh or frozen
6-7 fried red chillies
small piece of tamarind
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
some curry leaves
salt to taste

How to prepare:
Soak the chickpeas overnight. Usually the black channa is used to prepare this curry. You can use canned chick-peas instead. Cook the soaked chick-peas well. I use the pressure cooker to cook them. Cook the vegetable separately (raw jackfruit or potatoes) with a little salt. Grind together the coconut, red chillies and tamarind into a smooth paste. Add the ground masala to the cooked chick peas. Also add the cooked vegetable and salt and bring it to a boil. Head oil and add mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the curry leaves and then add it to the chick peas. Serve hot with rice.
