Now take pressure cooker and put soaked white Chickpeas with 3-4 cups of water, let it cook till three whistles. Grind Ginger and Garlic together to form a paste in mortar-pestle. When Chickpeas are cooked, drain the water and keep it in a utensil.
Take a frying pan and put Cinnamon, Cumin, Cloves, Red Chili powder, Stone flower, Black Cardamom, Green Cardamom, Fennel seeds and Coriander seeds and roast them. Instead of these you can simply use two-three teaspoons of Majithia Chana Masala Powder. Once these spices are roasted add Coconut and fry for few minutes, when Coconut turns brown put off the flame and grind this entire mixture after cooling with a cup of water to form a paste. Take oil in a separate frying pan and add Mustard, Bay leaf and Onions, fry till Onions turn brown. Add Curry leaves, Ginger-Garlic paste and Asafetida, fry till aroma of Garlic disappears. Add chopped tomato and fry for few minutes, add ground masala paste and stir and later add boiled white Chickpeas. SautÃ© for 3-4 minutes and later add water collected from pressure cooker, keep stirring the mixture after every 2 minutes and let the gravy become thicker. You can crush few Chickpeas with spoon, this will help in making gravy thicker. Once it is ready serve after garnishing
it with fresh Coriander leaves. You can serve Chana Masala with Pooris, Bhature or even with Parantha. Chana Masala also tastes very good with plain or fried Rice.

Use of Coconut in the dish makes its taste relishing and gives it a special appearance. If you do not like the taste of Coconut, add any other vegetable oil to fry spices or add Majithia Chana Masala Powder to heated oil. Serve it hot, you can also add Raita, Curd, Yoghurt or Salad for more variety in the meal.
