Kabuli chana or chick peas are often served at “gurudwaras”. Simply prepared they are cooked in a blend of masalas and served with puris. This just shows that the tasty chana requires almost no effort as it can taste brilliant when combined with any other ingredients. Here the kabuli chana has been added to a spinach based gravy after being cooked to perfection by adding some baking powder.
