Usually i prepare chenna masala for puri or chappati or for bread chenna in another
method what my mom taught me. It sounds South Indian taste. My husband doesn't like that one and i learnt this method from web site, a couple of months back (i think its from fat free kitchen or something sorry i could not remember pakka)
It came out well and it was in my draft and long pending. Today i decided to post it along with the Good Job award passed by Yasmeen of Healthnut and the magic Ginnie from Indranee of Mistress Spices.
