Usually, I prepare chutneys a day before. Red chilli chutney and tamarind chutney can be refrigerated for a long time like a week but green chutney can be preserved for a day or two.

Moreover, if you have some leftover boiled chana than the dish becomes very handy to make. When ever I make some chana dish like Chole bhature or chana masala I boil some extra chana for this dish to be prepared next day.

Chickpeas are not only tasty but healthy also. Chickpeas are a nutrient-dense food, providing rich content of protein, dietary fiber, folate, and certain dietary minerals such as iron and phosphorus.
