Indian food is so diverse. Although the core ingredients are more or less same, each state has their own method of preparation, unique spices and flavors. Today I’m sharing a very quick and wholesome recipe – Rasawala Chana, from Gujarat, India. Rasa refers to something that is saucy/ gravy kind of preparation. Black chickpeas are cooked in besan ( chickpea flour) gravy seasoned with spices, jaggery and tamarind to give this dish it’s heat, sweetness and tanginess. There is no sautéing of any masala here, which makes this dish a breeze to prepare. All you need is about 10-15 minutes and of course soaked and drained black chickpeas. That’s it, and this dish is ready just like that! How easy ! This is also vegan and gluten-free!
Clam pulao is a delicious and aromatic pulao/pilaf prepared in coastal Goa. The addition of sweet prawns/shrimps or clams, greatly embellish a simple pulao. You would not even need an side dish as the pulao is a complete dish on it’s own. Shrimp and clam pulao are my personal favorites amongst all the varieties of pulao, for it’s deliciousness, ease & speed of preparation. This is one of those minimal effort, maximum flavor kind of dishes. Of course if you are using fresh clams, you gottta cleam ’em up and stuff. But I wouldn’t really complain knowing the end result that awaits me after the preparation of this pulao.
