This is a perfect sidedish that goes well with appam,roti or even rice…This is a simple dish to make…I used dried chickpeas and soaked it overnight and pressure cooked it,but if you are using canned chickpeas please drain it and rinse well..Then use it..I served it with nice fluffy appam…I hope you all will give this a try and let me know what you think..
