Cabbage Chana Subzi / Cabbage with Chickpeas

This is one of the easiest sidedish that you can serve with rice or roti in my opinion. I made it last weekend and took it to our aunt’s house to have lunch together. Everyone there loved this a lot.

The recipe which you see in the picture is double the quantity, since I made for both of our family.But the recipe which I given in the recipe is perfect for 4-5 people.
