Kala Channa :: Meatless Masala Monday


Kala channa, or black chick peas, are a type of chick pea that is nuttier and less likely to cook to a mush than the more common "white" chick peas. I recreated this kala channa dal from a distant memory of a dish my mom used to make. 

The result is an intensely flavorful dish, with competing flavors of spice and acidity, that is vastly different from other dal dishes.

I like kala channa on its own topped with chopped tomato and onion, I assure you, it is absolutely tasty this way.
