Not something i would have ever considered until I joined this forum.   A chana dhall side in a restaurant was enjoyed.  My trying to replicate it was never on the radar.  But now I enjoy a basic recipe with a couple of chappatis on a regular basis.  Simple but very effective.
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

Gav I hold my hands up here.

I have followed the Indian trend due to budget restrictions. Split peas and lentils.

Yellow peas (matar) is replacing chana dal as its equally nutritious and prices are one third of chana.
