Black Chana in my hometown is prepared mostly for iftars during the holy month of Ramadan. Kala chana is dark brown and smaller in size than the kabuli chana and is a rick source of protien. You can include this beans in your diet in a variety of ways and today I'm sharing one easy recipe from my kitchen.
