Super tasty and healthy. Comfort food at its finest. This palak chana is a healthy and delicious vegetarian curry recipe packed with protein and flavour. Try something new for a curry night with this vegan recipe that will be sure to please everyone.
This is one of my favourite curries out there. I absolutely love dal whether it is masoor dal, urad dal or rajma masala. Absolutely any type of dal is delicious. I also love saag. That is where this recipe comes in. It combines two of my favourite ingredients into this yummy curry recipe.
I use spinach leaves, that’s why I have called it palak chana as opposed to saag chana. Palak refers to spinach leaves whereas the latter refers to any green leafy vegetable which includes spinach leaves, as well as fenugreek leaves and mustard leaves.
It’s up to personal preference which you would choose to use.
This saag recipe incorporates chana dal as well. In English chana dal is known as split Bengal gram. You could just call it split chickpeas, but as there are many different varieties of split chickpeas, I wanted to be more precise.
Chana dal specifically refers to the skinned and split version of the whole brown chickpeas.
Like most lentils, chana dal is also one ingredient that is very healthy and nutritious. It is packed with protein, fibre, and a variety of minerals. If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, then lentils are one of the best ways to get your intake of protein in.
However, this recipe is also perfect for meat-eaters as it will help provide so much more than simply protein. A healthy addition to any diet.
