Chole ka Masala

BM # 29   Week 3   Day 2

We all are great fans of Chole. Specially if prepared in the authentic Punjabi style.There are many versions of this dish.In fact I myself prepare 3-4 and my sis in law makes a version which is truly awesome.She makes a special spice mix, which is normally instant, but since so many spices go in it is better to make a mix and keep.Here is the recipe of this mix, which we use for about 300 gms of Kabuli Channa. You could vary the spices if you do not like any particular flavor.But it surely is a must try.The recipe for the chole with this masala shall follow very soon.

1 tbsp rock salt (kaala namak)
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp red chilly powder
1 tbsp roasted cumin pwd
2 tbsp coriander pwd
3 tbsp dry mango pwd
Mix all the powders and make Chole ka Masala.
