Chole/Channa Masala

While talking to my cousin last week, I asked her "What did you prepare for lunch", she said, chapathi and channa masala and she also told it was tasty and even her husband liked it very much. I asked here the recipe and she shared and finally she told she used MDH channa masala this time. I followed exact steps told by her and I got restaurant style channa masala.Here is the recipe of it,

You Need To Have:
1 cup Kabul Channa/Kabul Kadle
1 medium size onion
2 medium tomato
3 tsp MDH channa masala powder
1 tsp red chilly powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp oil
1 tsp butter
Bay Leaf,Cinnamon , Cloves, (Whole Garam Masala)
