 from Pakistan or married to someone who is? I  have a question about something I brought. A while back I got a bag of KALA CHANA (CHECK PEAS) I thought these where chick peas, DH said they weren't. He didn't tell me what they where or what I can do w/ them. I wanted to make MURGH CHOLAY(SP?) Yummy but anyway so what are these & what to make w/ them? Can anyone help me out, Thanks :)

 They are chick peas. They can also be called garbanzo beans.  People typically used canned and don't recognize a dried chick pea/garbanzo bean.

 yea I usually use can, only b/c I can never find them dried. I would rather use dried b/c isnt that healthier rthen can. Yea and I wish I could put a picture up here b/c they dont look to much like the chick peas we are use to.

This type of food is pretty much all I cook, DH is pakistani & not to willing to try other types of food.  Shan masala box save my life when cooking.  If you want you can send me a message about cooking.

 hey if you need any help or ideas im not bad at cooking the food.  Ive been told that my braynia (sp?) is like home made by a paikstani.  Oh do you use the SHAN MASALA box those are good to use if your new to making desi food. Also just send me a message if you have any questions.
