This is such a beautiful variation in preparing chickpeas.
I just knew Chole or Chana Masala. There's so much more to South Indian Cuisine or should I say Kerala's cuisine. Correct me if I'm wrong. Don't intent to hurt anyone's feelings.I'm still learning. Better still having a hard time even pronouncing the names. Thanks for sharing such wonderful recipes..atleast I can say I've heard of them.
