Chickpeas !! It’s so full of goodness. So here’s a recipe of chickpeas again in the blog after the healthy salad recipe with it.. In Kerala Kadala Curry/ Black chickpeas curry is mainly served as a breakfast curry with ” Appam” and “Puttu”..
Normally I used to make Kadala curry in coconut sauce.. But this time I substituted it with another ingredient which sounds really easy and yummy.. So if you want to know about that special ingredient check the recipe..
