This is kerala style curry made of chickpeas (channa white or brown) and coconut with some spices. It goes well with puttu. Chickpea is rich in protein and fiber. My husband’s granny makes very tasty puttu and kadla.
Puttu is a traditional Kerala breakfast which is made of rice and coconut steamed in a long kuzhal or tube like thing. Usually it is eaten with channa or kadala curry. Children eat this with Nenthiram banana.
