Chana Jor Garam | Indian Street Snack | Snack Recipes and Ideas

Past 2 months since we had reduced our grocery trips, I had to stock up on extra packets of my preferred foods, dry staples, and snacks that could last well.  Chana Choor, for instance.

After having Bhel Puri a few days back (puffed rice lasts long and I had the murmura packet since a few months already), and after having Pani Puri the day before (again, the boxes of puffed semolina puris last me a month or two), today it is "Chana Jor Garam" for my snack.
