Peel the green grams and take out the grams, wash and boil them for 1 whistle in pressure cooker.
If you are using dried ones like me soak them overnight and boil them for 4 whistle in pressure cooker.
Grind onion, garlic, green chillies into a smooth paste, keep it aside.
Then take half of the green grams and grind it into paste and keep it aside.
In a deep heavy bottom karahi/pan heat oil. Once oil is warm put cumin seeds, asafetida in it.
Once cumin start to splutter add the onion garlic chilli paste. Cook it until the raw smells goes away.
Now add all dry spices, Turmeric, coriander, amchoor, garam masala and salt. mix it well for 2 minutes.
Now add green gram paste in and fry for 2 more minutes.
Now add rest of whole green grams and mix them all.
Add 1 cup of water and cover it with a lid. Cook on low flame till the gravy starts to thicken up.
When Nimona is cooked take it our in a serving dish and sprinkle some fresh coriander on it and serve with sattu ki roti or makke ki roti.
