Kala Chola Pakistani-Style

"'Kala Chola' is a Pakistani dish that can be served as a meal, with rice, or just on its own. It is made with kala chana, which is in the family of garbanzo beans. You can find them in Indian/Pakistani stores or in the Indian/Pakistani section of an international store. It is really tasty and very popular in my home. According to my mom (a diabetic), kala chana are high in fiber and low in fat. It is great for people with blood sugar problems. Serve by garnishing with onion and cilantro with basmati rice. Hope you all enjoy it."

Yes I am a dork for reviewing my own recipe, just wanted people to know that they could also make this in the slow cooker by decreasing the water and extending the cooking time. I love it so ea...

Kaala Chana is my husband's favorite dish and I have been trying to make it the way he likes it for years with no results. This is the only recipe which he really loves, thank you for sharing it...
