I have made the black but we were not so fond of it and prefer the regular-white. I made Pindi Chana the other night-love the flavours. This recipe sounds quite nice, I will try this as we love chloe. The ones I make are always with a sauce/gravy. Shanti/Mary-Anne

This sounds like a different Chole recipe. The one I make has some gravy since i use tomatoes, mint and cilantro. This sounds different and nice. Shall give it a try.
