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 Iv perfected it.
