Homemade Channa Masala Powder for Chole

Ashaji' blog - Foodie's Hope is one of the places that I love to visit. I like the way she presents the recipes and shares with us the books she read and movies she watched that week. She is on a break now, more than a year, and I wish she comes back soon. I have bookmarked many recipes from her site and this is one of them

Though Poori and masal are the favored pair at home, sometimes for a change I like to prepare chole to go with Poori.I have always been using the ready made channa masala powder and once I saw this on Ashaji's blog, bookmarked to prepare it. Now the time has come and here is the recipe.

I used:
Recipe Source :Foodie's Hope

Coriander seeds - 3 tablespoons
Cumin seeds - 1 tablespoon
Peppercorns - 1 teaspoon
Red chillies- 2
Cloves- 8 numbers
Cinnamon - 1" piece
Cardamom seeds from 2 pods

Nutmeg powder-1/4 teaspoon
Ginger powder - 1 teaspoon

  1. Roast all the ingredients except the last two powders till brown.
  2. Cool and grind to a fine powder.
  3. Remove this powder onto a jar and add the nutmeg powder and ginger powder.
  4. Mix well and store in an air tight container.
It is best to keep this container in the fridge and use as required.Stays fresh longer.

Chole prepared from home made masala is bound to be extra delicious....
