Chickpeas & Tomato Pulao

Pulao is my all time favorite dish, it is easy to make in many variations. I found this recipe here. I took some leftover chickpeas and gave it a turned out very good.. I made some changes to add my personal touch..

It can be served as side dish or with any curry of your choice or wrap in a tortilla.

Tomato(Chopped):- 2 medium
Chickpeas(Boiled):- 1 1/2 cup
Rice:- 1 Cup
Vegetable Stock/Water:- 2 cups
Lemon Juice of 1/2 lemon( or as per your taste)


1) Melt ghee in a pan, put bay leaf , cinnamon stick & black cardamom.
2) Add jeera, mustard and let it splutter.
3) Add garlic and fry until light brown.
4) Add tomatoes and cook over medium heat stirring in between.
5) Add chickpeas, salt & pepper to the tomato mixture and cook for 5-7 minutes.

Nice recipe Preety. Love anything with chickpeas and it sure is worth a try :)

Preety, regarding your question about Rava dosa. I can't think of a substitute for buttermilk. If you are allergic to dairy product, you can try skipping the buttermilk and use just water. If you are not able to make dosa with that batter, pls try adding some eno salt to it. That will make the batter fluffy like it was fermented.
