Here is a tongue-tickling curry of sprouted kala chana, cooked with whole spices, ginger-green chilli paste and jaggery.

Medium-spicy with a mild sweetness, the Kala Chana Ambti has a very homely flavour, which literally makes you lick your fingers with delight after you’re done.

Had with a bowl of hot Cooked Rice or Chapatis it gives you the satisfaction of having had a wholesome and tasty meal.

Kala chana perfectly cooked.. with chatpata stew.. The taste is perfectly balanced with little sweetness and sourness. This can be enjoyed with hot steaming rice.. or just plain.. i loved in both ways..
