This curry channa cutters dish I would consider as one that goes well with alcohol since this is what some people buy to eat while they are drinking at the bar. And, it really suits that type of function because it is very spicy which is said to "cut" the alcohol and delay the intoxication process.
All That is Spicy Including Curry Channa Cutters
In Trinidad and Tobago, all spicy finger food are called "cutters". The Cutters dish is served while liming or having a drink or two. So the other dishes like geera pork, geera neck or gizzard, pigfoot souse, chicken foot souse and pepper roti (because of it's spiciness) etc. will also fall into this category.
Since I'm not much of a drinker, I tend to enjoy these channa cutters without alcohol, but still while liming, or just at home watching a good movie. So, instead of looking to make the regular popcorn why not "bubble" a pot of some curry channa cutters the next time you plan to watch some movies or liming. I'm sure it will be a welcomed change. As always you can adjust the heat to your liking. Here's curry channa cutters.
Curry Channa Cutters Recipe
CURRY CHANNA CUTTERS

1 small hot pepper, chopped
1 tbsp. oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp. curry
4 leaves chadon beni, chopped

Soak the channa overnight and pressure cook for ten minutes.
Saute the onion, garlic, chadon beni and hot pepper for 1 minute.

Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the green seasoning...
...and continue to simmer until the majority of the water has evaporated. Serve hot.
See how easy it was. As usual more recipes to come.
