Kabuli Chane ki Pulao is an excellent one pot rice meal to be enjoyed with raita.

Kabuli Chana in my home is mostly used for making chole with poori or chana masala with bhatura, roti or rice. I also use it in making aloo chana chaat. You can also enjoy this protien rich chickpeas in the form of pulao, the recipe of which I'm sharing today. You can slightly vary this yummy dish by adding potatoes to it as well. You can also use pre boiled rice, in that case just follow the same steps till a nice chana masala is ready. You can then add the pre cooked rice and give a gentle mix. Simmer for around 5-6 minutes.
