Day 7#: Masala Channa Sundal / Masala Kondakadalai Sundal | Navarathiri Recipes

For day 7, I made this masala channa sundal for neivedhiyam. I had seen this in Sharmi's blog and had bookmarked it immediately. Adding the homemade spice powder gives a unique taste when compared to the regular tempered sundals that I make. You can add the spice powder for any type of sundal varieties but I think it goes best with channa sundal. Again this also makes an easy stir fry which could be used as a side dish or could be packed off for lunchboxes.

~*What U Need*~
Kondakadalai/Chickpeas - 3/4 cup
Grated Coconut - 2 tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste

To roast and grind:
Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
Channa Dal - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli - 1

To temper:
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad Dhal - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli - 1
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
Hing - a pinch

How I made it:
Dry roast the ingredients given under 'roast and grind' and grind it to a coarse powder. Set aside.

Soak channa in water overnight. Pressure cook for 3 whistles till soft. Drain and set aside. In a pan, heat oil add mustard seeds, urad dhal allow it to crackle. Add hing, curry leaves and split red chilli and saute.

Add the cooked channa and mix well. Add the dry roasted powder, coconut and salt and mix well. Cook for 1 min and remove from flame.

Serve hot as evening snack!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
