the chick peas have to be boiled before adding to the other ingredients, otherwise they will be hard to chew. This is wrong, it will not work out.

what is that exact smell in chana masala which comes in hotel? i asked few chefs they told me you have to boil onions before adding. i am almost 80% done with formula to make. except the particular attractive aroma which comes in a restaurant food. please guide if you can. thanks.
