Desi chickpeas are smaller and darker than Kabuli chickpeas, grown primarily in the Indian subcontinent and used in many regional cuisines. They have a nuttier and earthier flavor with a firmer texture and are commonly used in dishes like chana masala and chana dal, as well as roasted as a snack or in chana chaat. They are high in protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals, making them a nutritious addition to vegetarian and vegan diets. Desi chickpeas are also gluten-free and versatile in many recipes.
