Chana Palak is a mouthwatering subzi that makes you feel satisfied not just about the taste but the health aspects too! A nutrient-rich combination of spinach and white chick peas is enhanced with not one but two flavourful pastes – one of onions, and another of brinjals and tomatoes. Together with other common spices and spice powders, these pastes play a huge role in transforming the spinach and chick peas into a stunning show-stopper subzi!

I was not very sure about this recipe after reading use of brinjal in the paste....but it turned out to be a lip-smacking subzi...there is no taste of brinjal at all....and soo nutritious. All mothers out there can serve this recipe to their kids who hates brinjal like me....:)

Very tasty and easy to make. Gives the boring palak a new taste. Must try. Goes well with roti.

Never thought chana can be made so interesting by cooking with spinach, onion garlic paste and most importantly brinjal and tomato mixture. brinjals and spinach i know are rich in iron hence i make this recipe for my daughter to slyly include theese veggies in her daily diet. when bored of eating usual pulse subzis do try this one coz it scores a full 4 star rating from me and my fly.
