CHICK PEAS SUNDAL / CHANA SUNDAL / CHANA SNACK


Chick peas or chana sundal is South India version of boiled chana snack. It is common street food specially sold in the beaches. Boiled chana is tempered and sauteed with grated coconut. I enjoy this as a light meal for brunch.

Ingredients:
Boiled chana ...  2 cups
Grated coconut ... 3-4 tbsps
Onion ...  1 small (finely chopped)
Curry leaves ... few
Dry red chillies ... 1-2
Mustard seeds ... 1 tsp
Asafoetida ... a pinch
Lemon juice ... 1 tbsp
Salt ... to taste
Oil ... 1-2 tbsps

Method:
1. Soak the chana overnight and boil them adding salt.
2. Drain and set aside.
3. In a pan add oil and add the mustard seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and broken red chillies.
4. When they crackle, add the chana and grated coconut and saute.
5. Check for salt and add if needed. Squeeze the lemon juice and stir.
Serve warm or cold.
