Chutneys make a meal really mouth-watering and tasty. But making and eating the same kind of chutney everytime is boring. We all need change especially when it comes to food, why compromise. With only a few ingredients you can make a different dish or in this case a different chutney. So we are back with another chutney recipe, kabul chana chutney or chick peas chutney.
Many times we have leftover chana after making chhole or chana masala. It’s never easy to get the measurement right for chana. So in that case what would you do with the excess soaked chick peas. Well here’s an idea, kabul chana chutney.
Usually we make chutney with coconut and roasted chana instead why not try making it with kabul chana. What you get in the end is really delicious, very creamy and full of texture and taste, kabul chana chutney. Hummus is such a fancy sounding condiment these days and it’s the ‘in’ thing! Our kabul chana chutney gives even the best of hummus a run for its money.
Serve this kabul chana chutney as a side dish with idli or dosa! Try more chutneys from FOI, methi stalks chutney, raw mango chutney, nellikayi chutney, gorikayi chutney and of course hotel style chutney. And even more, sweet potato chutney, heerekayi sippe chutney, ginger chutney etc.
