Kala Channa Kadhi

 Today I am sharing another yogurt based recipe for the protein rich dishes.My family likes mor kulambhu a lot.So I try varieties of yogurt based curries.

Kadi is a North Indian version of mor kulambhu whereas gram flour and yogurt mixture is used.
Like South Indian version,kadhi has so many versions and popular in many sates.One such version is with kala chann(black chickpeas),quiet popular in Rajasthan.

The recipe sounds so simple but the taste is so amazing with piping hot rice.Tastes better if ghee is used for seasoning but I used the cooking oil.

I try to incorporate beans and legumes in day to day cooking. This kadh i/mor kuzhambu is good one one. Gonna try it for sure. Very nice.

Such a fingerlicking kadhi, dunno why i never tried kadhi with channa, lipsmacking yogurt curry.

With these stunning pictures I do not want to look at the recipe. Just want the plate of food.

I love the picture with rice on side of kadhi, stunning. There are so many versions of kadhi and this kala Chana one looks lip smacking delicious.

Beautiful pics to stare .. I want a bowl of rice with some kadhi now..

Wow Nalini..awesome preparation. We make something similar with yogurt, chana and besan flour, but its thicker and served as a sabji.
