1. Sprouted Kala Chana

This is a next option to soaked chana as you need to leave the soaked ones tied in a wet cloth or even you can leave them in the bowl as it is, after draining the water, for around 24 hours. In desi way, its called “Ankurit Chana” which had always been the best option since our ancestors.

2. Roasted Kala Chana

This is by far the most laziest way, obviously, to consume it. Usually you can get the roasted ones in local snacks corners which are mostly known as “Bhujiya Wala” in our Indian markets. 

If you need to rush for work or school or college, just make your pocket full and keep popping in your mouth every now and then.

3. Chana Masala

You are obviously aware of this option, which is an easy and popular dish in every region in India. If you are finding an alternative for everyday boring soaked one, you can prepare an easy curry recipe and have it with chapati or rice. 

Needless to say, this can put some extra fat and less nutritients when compared to above 2 options but obviously a tastier one.
