It is a flavor-packed spice mix that can kick up any chana/chole recipe. It gives pungency and buzz to the dish. I love to use this masala when I am making some chana or chole recipe and don’t have the time/mood/energy to work too much on the recipe. I leave the job on Punjabi Chana Masala Powder. And it does its job pretty well.
This recipe for chole masala powder has a pretty long ingredients list. Although the spices used are not too rare. But it is a fairly long list. The only tricky part is that I have used most of the ingredients in their powder form. So you will need to work out there a little if you have them as wholes.
If powdered spices are not available, use 1-inch dry ginger instead of 1 tsp dry ginger powder, 4 tsp pomegranate seeds instead of 2 tsp pomegranate seeds powder, 1 tbsp dry fenugreek leaves instead of 1 tsp fenugreek leaves powder, 1-inch cinnamon instead of ¼ tsp cinnamon powder.
1.Collect all the powder spices.
2.To mix them properly just pass through a grinder once.
3.Till all the spices are well combined
4.Use to make scrumptious chana masala recipes. Bon appétit.
