Chanar Dalna is a very hearty vegetarian preparation with simple ingredients. My mom used to serve this curry with 'Luchi' and the pair was heavenly. 'Chana' means curdled milk or homemade paneer and 'Dalna' means curry. Both of them are Bengali words. You can definitely make this dalna on any puja / vrat days as they are onion and garlic free. I have already shared 'chanar kalia' recipe with you all, but this one is much more simpler and hassle free than that. Try this recipe in your kitchen and enjoy a great lunch with your family.
