Kondai Kadalai sundal and about Soul Food Show

This sundal recipe is often made at my home; be it during festivals or just on an ordinary day. I've grown with this recipe and never got bored.

I would say this is perfect evening snack for kids as it is rich in protein and of course easy to prepare. I make this for my son atleast once during a week though he munches very little of the sundal. I prefer black channa for the sundal recipe to white channa or kabuli channa as I feel it tastes quite bland.

My Friend Viji at Virundhu Unna Vanga is hosting an event named Soul Food Show at her space to celebrate her first blog anniversary. She is so sweet and so are her recipes. I had a chat with her only for few minutes but I feel as if I knew her since my childhood. I request fellow bloggers to contribute as much as possible to make her event a huge success and she has announced fabulous gifts too.

Here goes the recipe.



Ingredients:

Karuppu Kondaikkadalai / Black Channa/ Chickpeas 1/2 cup
Dried Red Chillies 1-2
Curry Leaves  few
Grated Cocont 1-2 tsp
Salt

Preparation:

Soak Kondaikkadalai in water overnight.


Method:

Pressure cook Kondaikkadalai for 2-3 whistles.

Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add mustard seeds. When they start popping up, add curry leaves and chillies.

When they start sizzling, add cooked Kondaikkadalai. Sprinkle salt and stir well. Fry till the tempering gets mixed well with Kondaikkadalai.

Now add grated coconut. Fry for few more seconds and till done. 

Serves: 1
Serve as an evening snack or an offering to God.
