and 1/2 cup chana dal/split & skinned brown chickpeas these were soaked in water overnight and just before using them now the water was drained out were washed well in running water the chana dal will help make the gravy thicker which is what we want put them in the masala and stir until everything is well combined since the soaked ingredients are wet they will mix easily with the masala we will dry roast the chickpeas for about 5-6 minutes keep the heat around low-medium if required you may add water, as we did earlier, a tbsp at a time otherwise carry on dry roasting them we have used large-sized chickpeas for making the chole dish as the dish not only tastes better but also looks better after roasting the chole for about 3 minutes add in 2 tbsp of the chole masala powder which we had prepared earlier. you can add more or less as per your taste mix well and roast the chole for about 2 minutes more store the remaining chole masala powder in an airtight bottle and use it whenever
