Lisa’s Black & Yellow Chickpeas in a Sweet & Spicy Sauce

For the month of April, Lisa’s Kitchen is the featured blog for Tried & Tasted event, started by Zlamushka.  Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen is hosting it this month.  Lisa has an array of Indian vegetarian recipes on her blog.  I usually cook Indian food at home and hence tried her Black & Yellow Chickpeas in a Sweet & Spicy Sauce.

I followed her recipe with a few changes.  I substituted Red Kidney Beans with Red Cow Peas, as I did not have any kidney beans in my pantry.  I used 8-10 green chilies and ½ tsp of chili powder  to satisfy my palate.   I pressured cooked the beans for 5 whistles as it is faster to cook in a pressure cook.  My Urad and cow peas were a over cooked and mushy, and chickpeas were cooked to perfection.  Next time I prepare it, I will pressure cook the beans for only 4 whistles and if required,  I will either pressure cook for another whistle or cook the beans on the stove top until the beans are cooked.

I served my Chickpeas in a Sweet & Spicy Sauce with rice.  It would be a nice side dish to serve with roties and parathas too.
