KONDAI KADALAI SUNDAL / BLACK CHANA MASALA SUNDAL


Usually made this recipe for Ganesh Chaturthi, or Navratri days, but I like to make it whenever I wish. Actually it is a festive food, very simple, delicious as well as healthy too. Fresh roasted and gounded spices add a nice aroma in it. This is an absolutely guilt free low fat snack, high in proteins, healthy and filling.

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/3 cup Black Chickpea / Black Garbanzo Beans
3 tbsps Grated Coconut
2 tsps + 2/3 tsp Urad Dal (spilt black gram lentil)
1 tsp Chana Dal (Bengal gram lentil)
2 Whole Red Chillies
3 finely chopped Green Chillies
2/3 tsp Mustard Seeds
10-12 Curry Leaves
1/3 tsp Asafoetida (hing)
1 tbsp Fresh Lemon juice
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste

METHOD:
Soak black chickpea overnight in water. Drain the water from it and wash nicely.
Pressure cook it with little water till 7-8 whistles. Let it cool naturally. Drain the excess water and keep boiled chickpea aside.
In a pan dry roast chana dal, 2 tsps of urad dal and 2 whole red chillies for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and grind it coarsely. Set aside.
Now heat oil in the same pan. Add 2/3 tsp urad dal and 2/3 tsp mustard seeds. When mustard seed pops up, add curry leaves, asafoetida and green chillies. Saute for a minute.
Now add boiled black chickpea in it. Keep stirring till its moisture evaporates completely.
Add dry roasted powder and salt in it. Mix thoroughly. 

Then add grated coconut  in it and mix nicely for 2-3 minutes.
Switch off the heat. Add lemon juice in it and mix nicely.
TIPS: If it is not a festive food, may add onions and garlic in it and make it spicy.
          May garnish with chopped coriander leaves also.
