Chickpea Masala

Laziness crepes into me as the winds starts to blow hard and the temperature forcefully drops low..Now I wud just love to crawl into the blanket and spend the whole winter there...but alas..with a bubbling son around is just difficult impossible...hmmm when there was enough of time for me to sleep during earlier days I sat and wasted it and now when I just want to sleep there is no time...Pathetic right? Anybody out there like me..
Hey ya I made a recipe index for my space..do check it out if interested and I am also having a facebook page..If interested join me there..:)
