Channa Sundal

I just gone done with cooking and relishing an elaborate meal and I seem to be the right frame of mind to have a really long nap ;). So a quick post this is going to be, a very easy one - Channa Sundal. Channa Sundal makes an appearance only once a year in my kitchen at the time of sarawati pujai. So if I dont click pics of it now and blog about it, we will have to wait a year to see this recipe in this space. :). Enjoy the festival mood, do the dandiya, eat sundal and have fun :)


Ingredients

Serves - 2
Spice Level - moderate
Prep Time - 8 hrs of soaking time.
Cook time - 5 min

Channa/Chole/Chickpeas - 1 cup
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Mustard - 1 Tsp
Dry Red Chilli - 2
Hing - 1 pinch
Curry Leaves - 2 Sprigs
Jeera/Cumin - 1/2 Tsp
Salt - as per need
juice of half a lemon

How do you do it

1. Soak the channa in enough water for 8 hrs or overnight. Pressure cook the soaked channa for 3 whistles. Drain the water and keep the channa aside.

2. Heat oil in a kadai. Add hing, mustard and jeera. Let them splutter and roast. Break the red chilli and toss them in along with curry leaves. Stir for a few seconds. Add the channa now, required salt and mix well until the channa is coated well with the tempering and takes in the flavors well - 3-4 minutes.
