CHOLE MASLA RECIPE | CHANNA MASALA WITHOUT ONION AND GARLIC

Channa masala or Chole masala a popular punjabi gravy, is very popular at my home too. Very recently my son Varun started to eat chole and since chole is a great source of protein, i make Chole every week . Check my version of Channa masala which i had posted earlier here. During this 15 days before navaratri and during navaratri, many people observe fast and also don’t include onion or garlic in their food. This recipe of Chole masala doesn’t include onion or garlic and yet turned out very tasty and yum. I learnt this recipe from my relative and now a days i am making  chole masala in this style only.
