As a good source of dietary fibre, kala chana helps aid digestion, regulate bowel movements, and promote a healthy gut. “The fibre content also helps maintain a feeling of fullness, which can assist in managing weight,” Kapoor mentioned, adding that the combination of protein, fibre, and low-calorie content helps promote satiety, control cravings, and manage portion sizes.

According to Kapoor, kala chana is a heart-friendly food. “It contains high amounts of soluble fibre, which can help reduce cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart disease,” she concluded.
