Channa Masala (Chole masala)

>> Monday, August 16, 2010

Channa masala is most popular street Indian food.  Each of us have our own version of cooking this spicy & hot curry.  I learnt this from my amma & I am sure it will taste simply delicious.  Chickpeas are pressure cooked first & then mixed with spicy masala.  This can be served with rotis, dosa & puris.  Any leftovers can be used for making chat with samosas or papadis.  Best way to serve the evening snacks little rich & protein.
