There are several interesting things about this recipe. First of all, there is the malvani masala, which is so aromatic and flavourful because all the ingredients are toasted before grinding.

Then, there is the hara chana, which is cooked and crushed to a very convenient consistency before being used in the gravy.

Then, there is the use of tamarind instead of tomatoes, which adds to the flavour and pungency without toning down the effect of the spices.

In all, the malvani chana masala is a dish that has to be experienced to understand its full worth!
