Dialling multiple contacts

I live in the US and often use some calling service to call people back home in India. The procedure generally goes like this -

Dial a toll free number
Wait a second or two, press "1" or something like that to choose a menu option.
Dial an Indian number.

Now, both the toll free number and the destination number are in my contacts list, and I don't have them memorized.

Is there anyway I can dial all of this in one go? I generally have this typed out when I call - <Toll free number> p 1 p <Indian number>, so that it dials out the toll free number, waits, sends 1, waits, and sends my Indian number. But I want it such that I can say

<contact number> p 1 p <another contact> and it automatically enters the numbers in from my address book.

Any ideas?

I know what you are trying to do but i do not believe its currently possible.

Lets say your calling "home".

Then why not just save a second version named "home 2" in your phone book composed in the format you posted above?

yeah, should be possible to just save the dial path as a contact with the pauses in it.

Try it.
