Brown Chick Peas are rougher and have a higher fibre content than yellow chick peas. Known as desi
or kala chana
in India, brown chickpeas are the ones used to make chana dal
. Just to confuse things, the brown chick pea is yellow inside, which means that chana dal is yellow, even though it is made from brown chick peas.

, and has only a slightly longer cooking time.
