  1. Yummmmy. This was delicious, and I am going to try and make it for the family tonight! What flavour does the Chana Masalsa seasoning have, and what else would you recommend that could be similar?
    PS> reallly looking forward to the pumpkin tartttt recipee!!!

  2. Glad to hear you are going to make it tonight :) let me know what the kids think! As for Chana Masala seasoning it is a mix of equal parts cumin, tumeric, paprika, coriander, ginger and cinnamon. So if need be you can make your own.

    The pumpkin tart recipe will be posted on the 28th! (This Friday... just in time to make it on the weekend :P)
