  1. Its a boiled white chana paste ? Or dry white chana powder ?

  2. @jiyaa emanIt is roasted gram dal, pottu kadalai / pori kadalai / chana dalia

  3. How different is the "dalia/ roasted gram dal" powder from besan? I have hard time finding dalia, and don't wish to peel skin of chana one by one.

  4. @AJDalia powder is more fine and it gives the soft texture..
