Procedure:

Cook the chenna in Pressure cooker and leave 2 whistle.Make sure that it does not cook fully.
Heat Oil in a frying pan and add cumin and mustard seeds.
Fry the onions till it turn light brown.
Add the tomatoes and all the masala powders,ginger paste and mix it thoroughly.
After the aroma arises add the cooked chenna.
