This chickpea curry with freshly roasted and ground masala and dried neem flowers sounds interesting di ! With palm jaggery, tamarind and spices going in , I can imagine how flavorful the curry must have tasted.
The curry sounds so fragrant and flavourful! This is a very new recipe to me – I’ve never heard of chickpeas cooked this way, before. Would love to try this out some time. 🙂
Mmm dried neem flowers. I have never tried that in chickpeas but can certainly say that it must be adding a unique flavour and taste. Loved the tadka on the top
Curry looks very intresting, tasty, aromatic and healthy as you used neem flower and chickpeas. Really it feels so good while preparing our elders recipes. Thanks for sharing this with us, will try it surely.
We odias, also use the dried version of neem flowers in most dishes when the season of fresh neem flowers goes away. Here the use of dried neem flowers in chickpea curry sounds so interesting di..
A totally different sort of chickpea curry for me. Love using tamarind in curries so this recipe is just perfect for me to try out. Wondering if I can make it without dried neem flowers.
I love these different flavours in chickpea curry so much different then what we make our regular Chole masala.. your version with neem flowers sounds so yumm.. will love to try this soon!!
The recipe is very unique for me, I have never seen this way of making the kuzhambu. Thanks for sharing this with us.
I will try this soon…..
