There are a few days when the Nortn Indian within me starts craving those flavours and those aromas. Yesterday was just that kind of a day.
So I planned on making spicy and flavorful kala chana masala for lunch. Luckily everyone in the family loves it too and quickly agreed upon the menu plan. And I guess , everyone wanted a break from that regular dal-rice-roti-veggie routine.
I started preparing the gravy , and the kitchen ( the whole house actually ) was filled with aromas of the North. The kids started their chants of “ is it done yet” ,and even the elders were waiting for it .
All of us did full justice to it , as the kadhai was licked clean at the end of the meal .
It’s a simple recipe , if you think about it. The usual tomato gravy and spices , perfectly cooked black chickpeas , and you are done. Just team it up with hot roti or naan and rice with a plate of sliced pickled onions. Sounds yum , right?
With the rain gods still making up their mind , enjoy the summer with this cool meal idea!
Sharing the recipe for the same!
