Black Chickpeas spicy masala is delicious dish. It is very spicy and tasty natural traditional dish. Black Chickpeas dishes are very famous and familiar to everyone. I think almost everyone likes black Chickpeas dishes very much especially vegetarians. Black Chickpeas dishes are mainly used by north Indians. They are using it a lot and also cultivating black Chickpeas. We can make a lot of variety tasty dishes by using this. This is favourite item for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. It is protein rich item so it can give proteins to human body so this will be suitable to vegetarians. Usually we are making black chickpeas curry for breakfast, lunch and dinner and this curry is available in every hotels for the breakfast. Here, I would like to share very spicy thick masala. I used only natural ingredients to make this tasty masala. It can use as the side dish but with hot rice is the super combination with this masala curry. Black chickpeas will become very soft if we cook it in pressure cooker and also help to save cooking time. It has an attractive mixed smell of both garam masala and cinnamon powder. Its main flavours are ginger and garlic. I made it first time today and I received good compliments from my family members. For children you can make it spicy less and it is better side dish with lunch for them. It is very simple and tasty vegetarian recipe.
