Channa/Chickpeas Sundal


Chickpeas: 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Coconut: 1 tbsp fresh, grated
Ginger: 1/2 tsp grated
Red chillies: 2
Green Chilli - 1
Urad dal: 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Salt: As required


Soak chickpeas in water overnight, and add salt to it and pressure cook for 1 or 2 whistles.  Dice onion into small square-shaped pieces and cut the green chilli also into small round pieces and keep aside.

Heat oil in a kadai and add 1/2 tsp of mustard seeds.  Once the mustard starts spluttering, add curry leaves, urad dal, red and green chillies and ginger.  When the dal turns light brownish, add onions and fry till they turn light brown.  Add chickpeas and a little bit of salt and stir well.  Cook for 1-2 minutes and add the grated coconut and mix well.  Remove from fire and serve hot.

  2. Hi Bindu,
    This recipe is great. It might be coincidence but my husband just asked me today to boil some chickpeas and he likes to eat them plain with some salt for seasoning...but i'm sure he'll love this sundal...also we love coconut in our dishes (typical for keralites) :-)

    Lovely blog with lot of my fav dishes too...
