Chundal - Masala Chickpea - South Indian Style

We celebrate Ganesh Utsav with great pomp and show..and every year we bring a little Ganesha home..But due to hectic lifestyles, Ganesha stays with us only for 3 or 5 days..and not for the whole 10 days...Everyday there is a new preparation for Neiveidiyam and my favorites are Rawa Kesari and Chundal..

I'm sharing the Chundal recipe with you which is very simple and easy to make..


2 cups chickpea, soaked overnight, boiled, drained,
4-5 curry leaves,
2 tbsp oil,
1 tsp mustard seeds,
1/4 tsp asafoetida powder,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
Salt as per taste

For Masala:
3-4 whole red chillies
1 tbsp whole coriander seeds
1/2 cup fresh grated coconut

1.) Grind the contents of the masala and set aside.
2.) In a pan, heat the oil and add the mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add the curry leaves, asafoetida powder and the boiled chick peas. Add turmeric powder and fry for 5-7 mins.
3.) Add the ground masala and mix well.
4.) Add salt as per taste and serve hot.
