chickpeas-sundal-recipe
I myself have rarely bought this black channa, but somewhere I ate this tiny little channa sundal, it was too tasty, so different from the other one. Still  bought this after ages and made this sundal for this post. I actually made both the simple version and this sundal podi version and made this kondai kadalai masala sundal. I have used a similar sundal podi in my pattani sundal recipe, but this one with one extra ingredient that I roasted and powdered – channa dal. You can try this sundal podi version for a  change, for a spicy punch and flavor. I really loved this version of sundal both with kala channa and this masala powder. Wishing you all a very happy Ganesh Chaturthi 2014 Happy.

Grated coconut - 1/4 cup

To roast and powder

Channa dal/ Kadalai paruppu - 1 tblsp

Coriander seeds - 1 tsp

Pepper - 1 tsp

To temper

Oil - 2 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Urad dal - 2 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method

  1. Wash and soak channa overnight. Drain water and pressure cook with water just enough to immerse the channa completely. Add salt and asafoetida. Pressure cook for 4 or 5 whistles in medium flame.
  2. 1-cook
  3. Heat a kadai and roast the ingredients under ‘To roast and grind’ table. Add jeera and asafoetida lastly as it will burn. Roast until channa dal turns golden in colour and aroma wafts. Cool down and powder.
  4. 2-roast
  5. Heat the kadai and temper with the items under ‘To temper’ table. Add the cooked channa, drained form water. If 2-3 tblsp water is retained, no problem.Stir well.
  6. 3-temper
  7. Add the powdered masala and grated coconut. Mix well for 2 minutes in medium flame.
  8. 4-ready

Notes

    • Adding salt to the channa prevents over cooking. Also adding asafoetida enhances flavor.
    • You can make this same without the powder too. Just temper with 2 red chillies.

Offer for pillayar, enjoy this healthy flavorful sundal as snack. I loved it snacking the whole day going here and there and eating this sundalBlushing.

    1. May be its not roasted well. It should be crisp enough to get grounded. Use more oil while roasting and do it in low flame.

  10. Raji make podi of dhania, red chili and chenna dal alone. This podi can be used for all kind of veggie curry, sundal. I grind coconut and this podi for arachuvitta sambar. Raw banana and brinjal curry taste yummy with this podi.
