This is the proportion for making 1 recipe with 1 cup of chhole/beans/dal/sabzi. You can multiply it with as many tomatoes you want to make it with & adjust the spices accordingly.
Please write down the number of tomatoes used - later when you pour the gravy into icecubes, it will be easier to calculate how many icecubes need to go in 1 recipe of chhole/dal/beans/sabzi. You can store the icecubes in a ziploc bag in the freezer - make sure to write the number of icecubes that need to go in 1 recipe on the freezer bag.
PROPORTION FOR 1 RECIPE WITH 1 CUP CHHOLE/BEANS/DAL/SABZI
For seasoning, add 2 tablespoons butter or ghee in a saucepan. Once it is hot, add 1 teaspoon cumin, pinch of hing (asafoetida). Add 1 tablespoon garlic paste, 1 tablespoon ginger paste, 1/2 tablespoon green chilli paste. Saute on low flame for 2 mins.
Add 1/4th white onion (finely chopped), add less than 1/2 teaspoon salt. On medium flame, cook onions till they are translucent.
Add 2 tomatoes (finely chopped), add less than 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook till butter starts floating on top of tomatoes, about 5 mins.
Add pinch of turmeric, 1/2 tablespoon red chilli powder, 1/2 tablespoon coriander cumin powder, pinch of garam masala. Reduce flame to low & saute for 2 mins
Cooking times may take longer when the quantity is much more, so make sure to cook every step of the gravy correctly.
Freeze in freezer safe ziploc bags, add to Punjabi recipes for an instant dash of delicacy.
Prepare & enjoy !!!
