How to make Spicy Chana Masala | Dry Chana Masala - Lunch Box Recipe 

Hello Friends,

As you all know that the father's day is celebrated on 18th June 2017, so today I'm going to share my dad's one of the most favorite lunch box recipes. Sharing spicy Chana masala recipe with step by step photos. 

Today's chana masala recipe is mom's most loved recipe.. I still remember whenever I use to carry this in my tiffin box, my friends used to almost finish it off. The same problem was faced by brother too, so he had requested mom to give double quantity, plus he asked mom to write down the recipe so that he can share this with his office colleagues as they literally forced him to do so...

The USP of today's recipe is that it is mom's creation and it is prepared with minimum required ingredients.. Yes! you got it right.. Minimum required ingredients and no use of ginger, garlic or special spices, still she use to create magic in all her food that whoever taste her food can't leave our house without praising her.
