Kadala Curry is a very traditional dish of kerala, where kala chana, also known as the desi chana is cooked and simmered in a spiced coconut gravy. This dish, is an inspired version of the original where we have played with the tastes by making it sweet and spicy. The addition of Dabur Homemade Tamarind paste along with Dabur Homemade Coconut milk and jaggery makes the kadala curry lip smacking delicious.

Serve the Kadala curry along with steamed rice and a Cabbage And Carrot Thoran Recipe for a delicious sunday lunch.
