This Chana aloo masala well goes with puri, roti even if with papdi…Actually friends last week I soak some chana and some boiled potatoes are there, planning to prepare osme salad. But as weekend we went out for shopping and dinner also outside done . Then next day morning thought to prepare aloo chana curry but when I prepare the dry masala it looks os tempting so keep that as it is. It is liked by all so thought to do a recording on this like we prepare in Odia style. So lets get started

When onion turn into golden colour,add chopped tomatoes n cook it till it turns into a paste consistency.
Now add all spices to this.

Add boiled chana n potato cubes to this and mix it well.
Add little water so that the masala is well coated with aloo n chana.
Finally add chopped coriander leaves.
Garnish with some chopped onion and lemon juice, it tastes awesome.
If you feel the onion tomato masala is not well coated with chana n aloo, add some water .
If you wish to make gravy type, you can add more hot water…it well goes with vada, puri n upma…
If you don’t ike the flavour of mustard oil, you can use any normal cooking oil.
