First let me thank all of you for your wishes and blessings for my little prince on his birthday. He had a great time with cupcake party in his day care and a small carrot cake at home with his dad and me.
Coming to the recipe, I know it is a strange name for a dish. But I didn’t want to say Swiss Chard-Spinach Chole, so I shrunk it to just Green Chole. This curry has all of my favorite ingredients: Chole (chickpeas/ garbanzo beans), Swiss chard (which I’m not sure why I don’t use more often), of course Spinach and Coconut milk. It’s a very simple curry dish, but is packed with nutrition and deliciousness.
I love using coconut milk in curries and dals. It gives any dish a slightly sweetish, mellow flavor and creamy texture. I always keep couple of cans of coconut milk, both low-fat and regular and coconut milk powder in my fridge. For dals and curries that only need a little bit, I use the milk powder instead of opening the whole can. I use the cans for making coconut milk based gravies and sauces.
