BLACK CHANA~Black chickpea curry~ काला चना
Kala chana is the healthier chickpea variety since it is rich in fiber and protein and tastes delicious. This is a family curry recipe and my mom would make these chickpeas always in ▶️ a cast iron wok. It gives a unique and flavourful taste to the curry and in addition the freshly ground spices enhance the flavor.
