    Chana masala powder

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Chana masala powder is bought of the shelf from the grocers. However this would be my version of the compound mix:

    List of Ingredients

    cumin seeds - 100gms
    black cardamom - 10 gms
    yellow cardamom - 5 gms
    black peppercorns - 25 gms
    dried red chillies - 5 gms
    dried ginger/soonth - large pinch
    mace - 2- 3 nos
    grated nutmeg - 1/4 no
    cloves - 5 gms
    cinnamon - 5gms
    amchur powder - 5gms (optional)


    Roast cumin seeds till dark brown. Roast all other spices except nutmeg, ginger and amchur powder collectively in a warm oven till light brown. Pound to a fine powder.

    This mix does not in any way resemble the ready to use stuff
