Ummmm. . . . Here is a sweet tangy kathol preparation that leaves your taste buds with food memories. Besan adds the required thickness to the kathol, but remember to sauté the besan on a slow flame till brown or else it will impart a raw taste to the kathol. Do not make this recipe too much in advance as it tends to thicken after sometime.

Very healthy kala chana dish and good source of protein. The tamrind water lends a lovely flavor to the gravy and jaggery adds the sweetness.
