Chana Zor Garam
I tried to find the Chana zor in the Indian food market here but couldn’t get them ,So I tried to make the chana zor at home.I searched many recipes and all of them suggested to fry the flattened chickpea in oil.But as soon as I fried them,they shrank in shape and hence I could not get the desired shape and texture.However,the taste was as good as it should be.I should have dried them first before frying and here in the recipe I mentioned to dry them before frying to get good results.Hope you all have enjoyed my Delhi Belly street food series.
How many of you have heard or remember the song about this chaat ??Tell me in the comments.
