Trying to transfer my photographic skills into cooking. This is what I created earlier this month - channai. If you want a sample, send a self-addressed stamped envelope and I'm sure I can save a couple morsels for you.

In fact, it was digested properly and my large intestine sang to the tune of an opera.

Thats good to hear it sang a good tune. Lately I've been having acid reflux issues along with some gas. Its not fun I wouldn't recommend it for others, however that hot dish does look yummy.

It's quite simple actually:

First, take two onions - cut them into little pieces. Now put them into a pressure cooker, stir them around heated until they are browned. When brown add half cup of water.
Next, two diced tomatos, three jalapeno peppers, 1 spoon red pepper, 1 spoon salt, 1/2 spoon tumeric, 1 spoon coriander and a little cumin seed. Add a pinch of garlic and ginger. Now mix the entire solution until everything seems to appear more viscous. When everything is much more viscous, you can add 1 cup water - then add a full can of garbanzo beans.

Shut the lid on the pressure cooker. Allow the entire thing to pressure cook for about - 7 seven minutes. When done, voila. Put some garnish on top and it's all done.

Need more specifics, just ask me. :-)
