kabuli-chana-pulao

Hi friends, chana pulao is very easy to make and nutritious. Apt for lunch box recipe and can make this pulao with chana instead of making kuzhambu all the time. I prepared the pulao with kabuli channa and I love the kabuli channa (white chickpeas) more than black sundal. White chickpeas are very nutritious and best for immunity. So you should give it to your kids and poor eaters too…

I have prepared the pulao in open pot method. The taste and aroma of the pulao will be so good and you can add other veggies too. I have tried kabuli chana vadai, it is nice twist from usual bengal gram vadai.  We served the pulao with Cauliflower stir fry and  Minty Lemonade  as it ease digestion.
