Kadala Curry is a very popular traditional breakfast dish from Kerala. It is prepared using black chickpeas/garbanzo beans and is cooked in a spicy coconut based gravy. It is served traditionally with puttu or idiyapamm. I had kadala curry for the firsttime during my holiday in Kerala since then I’ve been hooked to it. The recipe which I am sharing here was shared to me by an ex colleague, who would always bring kadala curry and puttu in her lunch box. The variation I made to the original recipe is to use green chickpeas and skipped adding the tomatoes since my husband is not very fond of gravies that are sour but if you like it sour go ahead and add tomatoes.
