Also known as the black chickpea or Bengal gram or Kala chana, the desi chickpea is smaller, darker brown, with a thick, rough, seed coat. The word ‘Desi‘ means ‘country‘ or ‘local‘ in Hindustani. Desi chickpeas have a markedly higher fibre content than other varieties and a lower glycemic Index. It is probably the earliest variety because it closely resembles seeds found at archaeological sites.

The dark seed coat is usually removed, then the seed is split in half to produce ‘Chana Dahl’ or Besan Flour. In its whole form it is usually used to make curries or casseroles.

Our desi chickpeas are supplied to us by Four Leaf Milling in Tarlee, South Australia.
