Black Chickpeas Sundal


  I have been visiting the new temple in our community on Thursdays which is a special day for Sai Baba. All the devotees bring in prasadam, and I tried this black chickpeas sundal which was well received both at my home and at the temple.

Ingredients: (serves 4 people)

1 cup of black chickpeas
2 red chillies
1 tbsp of  grated coconut
1/2 tbsp of Bengal gram dhal
8 curry leaves
1/4 tsp of mustard
pinch of asafoetida
oil as required
salt as required

Preparation:

1. Soak chickpeas for overnight and pressure cook them with salt.
2.Add little oil to the pan and roast Bengal gram dhal and red chillies. As they turn golden brown, allow them to cool. Grind them with the coconut.
3.In a preheated pan, add oil. Add mustard, asafoetida and curry leaves.
4. As the mustard sputters, add the cooked chickpeas and ground mixture. Saute for 2 minutes. 
5.Sundal is ready. Enjoy this healthy snack which has a high protein and fiber content.
