For the past few days it's been raining parathas and rotis in MSP. So today's post is an accompaniment for any indian flatbreads. I prefer to have this particular gravy with some spicy parathas because this is a mildly sweet and spiced yoghurt based gravy from the "Paharis" of Himachal region. Ethnic group of the Himalayas living in Jammu, himachal and Nepal are called paharis. Pahar meaning, hill and people of the hill sides are called paharis or pahadis. "Madra" means gravy based with yoghurt, hence the name "Channa Madra". A perfect side dish for the cold weather .
This post falls under the state Himachal Pradesh, in North India. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 39

On my trip to HP. .I learnt this dish from a professional local chef. We all lived and the version you have tried is awesome and looks perfect.
Suma Gandlur says
Looks yum. I too made the same dish.
Even I made channa madra and yes it was a bit on the milder side. The first day I served it with rice but tasted better with poori the next day and I also spiced it up a bit the next day.
