gassi recipe | mangalorean chana gassi recipe | veg ghashi recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. chana gassi is popular mangalorean gsb konkani community recipes which is also known as channa sukka. this famous coconut based curry is a counterpart to famous kori gassi or mangalorean chicken curry which is served with rice rotti.

to be honest i am not huge fan of this recipe, however my husband just loves this curry. whenever we travel to india, he makes sure to buy the famous south canara ‘akki rotti’ or rice roti which is a perfect combination for this curry. perhaps, he got the taste for this curry from his konkani community freinds and he ask’s me to prepare this frequently. i prepare this curry with variation of vegetables like green peas, potato and even beans. but the authentic chana gasssi contains kabuli channa and elephant yam (suran).

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a yummy gassi recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to roast all the spices before grounding them with coconut. this would enhance the flavour of spices and eliminates the raw smell. secondly, the coconut curry should be be thick and not watery. lastly, if you need more coconut flavour, you are more than welcome to add ½ cup of coconut milk. coconut milk is a must in kori gassi recipe and you can extend this to chana gassi recipe too.

finally, i would request you to check my other curry recipes collection from my blog. especially, basale gassiudupi sambar, avial recipe, potato gassi, bhindi sambar, yam stir fry, bitter guard stir fry, idiyappam, appam and neer dose recipe. in addition do visit my other south indian recipes collection like,

notes:

  • firstly, the ghasi should be of thick consistency, so always add water as required.
  • further, cook the suran completely before adding masala, as they wont cook once the masala is added.
  • additionally, chane ghashi can also be prepared with just chana and skip yam completely.
  • finally, season with coconut oil for more flavours to chana ghashi.

  1. I am a big fan of Hebbar’s kitchen. But in this recipe I totally agree with Priya. This is definitely not a konkani style chana gashi.

    In our konkani community we don’t add any spices. Masala is prepared only with coconut, roasted red chillies, and tamarind. Then seasoning with mustard, curry leaves and little fenugreek seeds.

  2. Are you sure Onion and garlic has to be added for gashi masala? Chane gasi is prepared in temple also for festivals its a no onion no garlic recipe. I think the recipe here is a different varient again. Because we do not add onion garlic for any gashi.

    • I never meant to find faults in your recipe or point out at the recipe. Its just that I find big difference in the actual ones I make and variations in the one you mention. Seeing that its Hebbars kitchen I expect the dishes to be the original udupi/mlore side ones. So just checking why the difference. Please dont feel offended.
