To my surprise, many of my friends were unaware that kala chana (black vatana) is available at most grocery shops. Therefore I've introduced this kala chana recipe for all its good protein qualities. This pulse requires long and slow cooking similar to kidney beans (rajma) but sprouting helps to reduce its cooking time and adds on to its vitamin and mineral content.
