Sukhe kale chane with puri - reminds of the oh-so-yummy Ashtami feast, right? Kale chane or black chickpeas with their profound nutty flavour sit well with every palate. In fact, kale chane rasedaar (with gravy) paired with rice is loved almost as much, if not more than, rajma rice. Sadly, this is where the use of kale chane stops in most of the Indian kitchens, which is quite unfair as the unique flavour and meaty texture of black chickpeas can be explored to venture into a whole new arena of food - snacks. Yes, you can make some lip-smacking evening snacks with kale chane and revamp your appetisers menu.
