Chana Palak Recipe - Chole Palak Recipe - Spinach & Chickpea Curry

This is a simple curry which taste really delicious. It is simple to make and goes great with roti, chapati, phulka, ghee rice or pulao. 

The combination of spinach and chana is really good. You can make it dry by adding less water, but i made it gravy like so it can be had with rice or chapati.
