Black channa curry recipe – No onion Garlic recipes

         I have made this several times and have also loved it.I even made in a big bulk for a friend for a party. I once served with vegetable rice when I had some friends home. It was liked by all. My friend asked me to post this recipe and I am doing it after a long time.This is quite similar to the kadalai curry with puttu , I had posted years ago. But not entirely same, so its more richer and tastier. It goes well with rice, mixed rice,dosas ,chapatis and even pooris. I have made both with and without onion and garlic and it tastes great anyway. You can even try the same recipe with white chick peas for a change and that tastes yummy too. Hope you try this one and let me know how you like it.
