Chickpea Pilaf {Channa Pulao}

I love simple, flavorful food and this is exactly what this is. 
Simple, sada, ghar ka khana. 

You'll need
1 tin of pre-boiled Chickpeas / 200-250 grams of boiled Chickpea
1 1/4 cup of Rice
1 small Onion
1 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
2 Green Chilies
a few Mint leaves
250 grams of Yogurt
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp of Red Chili Powder
1/4 tsp of Garam Masala

Fry onion till golden brown.

Add ginger garlic paste. Fry till fragrant. 
Add mint leaves, green chilies and all the spices.

Now quickly add yogurt.

Saute till it gets saucy.

Add chickpeas and fry for 5 minutes.

Add water, almost double the amount of rice. I used 2 and 1/4th cup of water.

Add rice when the water starts to boil.
Cook on medium flame till the water almost evaporates but still just a little bit left. Put on dam for 10 minutes (with tawa at the bottom)
