Chickpeas

  • India is the largest producer of Chickpeas and approx 80-90% supply of Chickpeas to the world is from India.
  • In India the two varieties of Chickpeas are termed as Kabuli Chana and Desi chana.
  • Kabuli Chana/White Chickpeas appears Creamish and is larger in size than Desi Chana. Kabuli chana is generally sold by count & size in millimeters (7mm – 14mm)
  • Desi Chickpeas are brownish red in color and are smaller in size (around 4-8 MM) that range in colour from light tan and speckled to solid black.
  • In compare with Kabuli chickpeas, Desi chickpeas have a markedly higher fiber content and hence a very low glycemic index which may make them suitable for people with blood sugar problems.
