Kala chana soup / black chana soup is a healthy protein rich soup made with few ingredients. Blach chana is also known as kala chana,black chickpeas,kadala etc… It is very rich in protein,folates,carbohydrates and iron. My mom used to prepare this soup when we were kids. So I have a deep sentiment to this soup 🙂 .Kala chana contains rich amount of protein and fiber and it is very good for kids. In addition to that I made this soup with sprouted black chana which makes the soup more nutritious.
