A big sigh of relief and a great sense of satisfaction. Mind is calm and composed and my heart leaps with joy as though I have achieved something. Wondering what this is all about ? Well I didn't accomplish anything. I just made my first home made spice mix. 🙂 Yeah. That brought a big smile to my face. For the past two years I have wanted to do this but just kept postponing due to sheer laziness. Finally Valli made me do this. 🙂
Even though we love variety in our dinner, sometimes certain dishes are repeated often. No matter how many times we have this, heart and stomach craves for it again and again. One such dish is this Channa Masala. It is ubiquitous and loved by all. It is not just confined to Indian homes, anyone in love with Indian cuisine will be surely fond of this. There is no Indian restaurant outside of India that does not serve this dish. This dish has attained such acclaims and rave because of its unique and delectable flavour which is due to this masala mix. This recipe is adapted from Indian Khana.

What is a "no's"?
It means numbers. As in 5-6 whole red chillies.

I cam smell the aroma of all those roasted spices! I once made chana masala at home from an another blog and it smelled so good. I can imagine how flavorful your masala powder is looking at the ingredient list. Nice recipe.
