Tandoori Chana Masala Recipe

Tandoori Chana Masala Recipe

Tandoori Chana Masala is one yummy and easy way to make Chole with a twist.  Now these Chole have a great taste and offcourse come with a twist. Not that they miss the punjabi flavor but offcourse aren't spicy but more Tandoori. The Tandoori masala bring a unique taste and it’s the same Chole with a different twist.


Now, it’s only for people who like twists in regular food while many would stick to the original Chana Masala. However like all my recipes we make sure it has a balance of health and taste with all the uniqueness it brings to the table.
