India is a vast country with a diverse culture and varied cuisine.  Among its plethora of cuisines, there’s something about Punjabi food that makes us all drool over it. Speaking of delectable and aromatic Punjabi cuisine, there is one vegetarian dish which is absolutely mouthwatering – Pindi Chana.

Straight out of the heart of Punjab, Pindi Chana’ is a popular variation of the versatile chole. It is different from the regular preparation in terms of color as well as texture.The Chole Masala is coated with gravy, whereas pindi chana is dry. Its dark color is the result of tea leaves. The leaves are added while cooking the chickpeas that give the dish a rich & earthy color and unique flavor.  Pindi Chana got its name after the town where it originated – Rawalpindi ( Pakistan) – in the days before the India-Pakistan partition.

Full of proteins, Pindi chana tastes great with naan, bhatura and kulche. Try it and enjoy a much-needed break from the regular Chana Masala. Located on M.I. road and Vaishali Nagar, Handi restaurant is an amazing place to go for authentic ‘Pindi Chana’. The ambiance is relaxing and the service is prompt.
