Kabuli Chana Palak Curry ( Chick Pea Spinach Curry)

Simple and quick... This is what I felt  after preparing Palak Chana curry....
Green sky with yellow stars...  This is what I felt after looking Palak chana curry.....
Finger licking and delicious.... This is what I felt after tasting it....

Few months back, when I am goggling, I saw this name palak chana. This name attracted me very much as I never tried chana in palak and heard of it. I want to give it a try as I love both spinach and chickpea. Finally, after few months, I made this curry as a side for puri and my hubby loved it. 

I made this curry very simple. Make Puree out of spinach. Make sauce with onion, tomato and spinach puree and add some spice powders and finally chickpeas. Simple and tasty side for any Indian bread.
