Kala Channa And Palak Subji. Brown Chickpeas And Spinach Curry
Growing up, I was a huge fan of Popeye and that me a complete spinach devotee. I am always looking for an excuse to include spinach in our recipes. Obvious reason is that it is super healthy. Spinach is very high in vitamins, fibre, folic acid and iron. And the other reason is the lush green color it provides to meals.Kala Channa And Palak Subji. Brown Chickpeas And Spinach CurrySo if you are looking for inspiration or ideas to include palak or spinach in your recipes then see the below recipes:

Here, I have tried to mix two iron loaded ingridents-kala channa or brown chickpeas and spinach. Rest I would say that the recipe is very much similar to Chole Palak (Chickpeas/garbanzo beans and spinach) curry.There is sharp taste of garlic and ginger  followed my peppery tang of onions, everything finally smothered with chopped tomato and handful of spices . Homemade garam massala is must in this recipe as it gives the aromatic climax to the curry.
