Making Channa Masala

Put Chickpea in water overnight and do not forget to add baking powder in that water. 
Next day rinse them and add these chickpea in a pressure cooker and add three glass water along with 1 tbsp salt. Pressure cook these ingredients for 10 minutes. 

After 10 minutes take out a chick pea and mash it between your fingers to know if it is well cooked or not.  When they are well cooked move them in a strainer and save the boiled water in kettle.

Now take a pressure cooker and put it on the stove. Add oil in it and Chopped onions.  Cook the onions until they become lite brown. When the color changes add Ginger Garlic paste in it and cook until the rawness turns in to well cooked. 

Add some water so the material does not sticks to the cooker. Now add all the dry spices in it that are starting from Turmeric powder in the ingredients list of Channa Masala. Mix them well and then add Boiled Chickpea in these spices and Sauté them for 3 to 4 minutes.

Remember to use lite hands so you do not break the chickpeas. After Sautéing add chicken cubes in it (These can be skipped if you are a vegan). When the chickpea are well Sautéed then add the water we saved earlier. If that water is in low qty then you can also include fresh water in it. 

Now we will pressure cook it again for 10 minutes. After ten minutes my chickpea are ready. Now Garnish them with sliced Ginger and green chilies. 

Making  Halwa (Pudding)

First we will prepare treacle. Add water, cardamom and sugar in a kettle and put it on flame. Stir it until the sugar melts completely. After it melts keep cooking it for 3 to 4 minutes. 

Now take another Kettle and add Desi Ghee in it. Now add semolina in it and stir it with lite hands (Low pressure). After 5 mins you will found Desi Ghee to be on the sides of the kettle. Keep Sautéing the Semolina on Medium flame.

When the Semolina is ready then add Treacle that we prepared earlier but with great caution. Add it slowly and carefully otherwise you can have its splash that can cause burns. After adding treacle keep stirring it. Now cover it with a lid and let it rest for 2 to 3 mins on medium flame. 

Open the lid now and your pudding is ready to serve. You can garnish it with almonds, pistachio and raisins. The choice on garnish is all yours. 

Making  Poori

Take a bowl and add white flour in it along with the salt and mix it to blend them together. 
Take a cup of warm water and add two tbsp yogurt in it and mix it well. Add some of the water mixture in the flour and mix it with your hand. After the material turns a bit solid add rest of the water mixture in it. 

Now if you need liquid to knead the flour, You can use simple warm water. When the white flour turns in to the dough, Grease it and cover it with lid. Give it rest for at least 10 minutes. 

After 10 minutes take out the dough and put it on a clean but oil greased counter / base. Divide the dough in two pieces by cutting it with a knife. Stretch the dough on the counter and cut smaller doughs out of it. Now shape the cut piece in to a round dough piece as like a dough of Roti. 

Now grease roller pin with cooking oil before rolling the Dough. Take a dough and press it with your hands then roll it under roller pin. It is better to keep the size of the Poori medium 

Put the rolled dough in the preheated Oil in fry pan. Use spoon to pour preheated oil on the poori, this will make it well protuberated. 

Now change the side and pour oil on the other side as well. We will make it well cooked this way.

When your poori changes it color to golden brown that means it is ready to serve. 

Enjoy your Halwa Poori and Channa Masala with your family and friends. Enjoy
