    • Hi,
      you can find the Chola dal as the same name in big supermarkets or local grocery store in india, it would be difficult to get the one in overseas,and if you dont find the dal, you can replace it with soaked black eyed beans(chola).

    • hi there, 

      Chola is basically the black eyed peas, and in India you will get the dal with the same name “chola dal’ in supermarkets and retail stores.
