CHANNA MASALA






Todays post is an updated version of my Channa Masala.................with updated photos as well. Looking at those old photos of my food back then Iv definitely come along way........definitely a learning experience.


This recipe tastes fantastic with Pooris! (Channa Batura) or you can even pair it with chapathis or parathas!.....healthy and quick. I made naans to go with it................was super soft and with no yeast. Promise to post the recipe soon........as soon as Iv perfected it.
