ABOUT Kadala Curry of Chole ka Curry RECIPE

This is one of my favorite curries that my mama used to cook for us. Piping hot curry and puttu will be served once we reach back in the evening during our school days. I still remember how eagerly i used to pick up the cilantro leaves and collect it on my plate. It just tasted awesome. Finally after many trials I attained the skill to make puttu and I decided, this is the time to prepare my favorite curry .Though it doesn't taste as tasty as my ammas preparation, my hubby loved it and his compliments resulted in this upload. Though you will find this post really lengthy once you start making the dish you will find it soo very easy.
