Spicy Chana Stir Fry
A very happy new year to all. Yesterday was a good start on new year. We went to temple and had breakfast outside. We were back at home by 12 noon and made lemon rice, papad, curd rice and spicy chana stir fry.
I had soaked a batch of chick peas for making salad. I made both salad and spicy chana stir fry. This is a very tasty combo for variety rice. It is thick gravy based and goes well for any pulao or variety rice. How did your new year begin?
