Kala Chana sabzi with veggie rice

Kala Chana Curry, is a mildly spiced black chickpeas curry made in an Instant Pot. So easy to make and so delicious! Kala Chana (chick peas) are an excellent source of protein. Did you know that one cup of cooked Kala Chana provides 15 grams of protein or 30% of the daily value, so its a great addition to a vegetarian diet. Chick Peas are also low in fat and high in fibre providing 13 grams of dietary fibre, almost half the daily requirement!! Check out our convenient instant pot Kala Chana Curry recipe below!
