Add the onions and garlic paste and sauté on a medium flame for 5 minutes. Add the tomato pulp, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add the coriander powder, garam masala, chilli powder, chole masala, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally. Add the kabuli chana along with the water and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 16 minutes or till the water dries out, while stirring occasionally. Add the coriander and mix well.
