Masala sundal/Kondakadalai Sundal/Easy snack

         Sundals are the best way to get proteins for vegeterians .I too love to make them .I got to try lot of sundal varieties still i love this sundal what my grandma makes for the temple occasion .I wanted to try it too .Got the recipe from her ,I haven't added green mango to it .Instead i added lemon juice .It tasted so good .Masala is not overpowering but it is exact amount to be for this Channa.
          Black Channa is good for eyes (my grandma says that).I found it has more iron and it is very rich in proteins.

Masala sundal

Soaking time:8 hours(If you are sprouting it takes at least 24 hours )
Cooking  time :20+10 min
Serves: 7-8 servings

Masala sundal1

  • 1 1/2 cups Kondakadalai/Black Channa (soaked and pressure cooked)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 

To temper:
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • few curry leaves

To grind:
  • 1 tbsp grated coconut
  • 2 green chilies
  • 1 tsp Fennel seeds/sombu
  • 10 strands of coriander leaves
  • 1 inch ginger piece
  • small raw mango piece(optional if using lime juice)

  • I used sprouted Channa (if you want to sprout them soak 2 days before for 8 hours ,strain the excess water out and keep on shaking it for every 8 hours.After 24 hrs you can see the white sprouts coming out )
  • Pressure cook the Channa for 2 whistles by adding just enough water to immerse them.
  • Grind grated coconut,chilies,cumin seeds,coriander leaves,ginger piece to coarse mixture by adding little water.
  • Heat the tava and add oil to it .
  • Add mustard seeds and wait for it to splutter.
  • Add curry leaves and add the Channa.
  • Add ground masala as well.
  • Add enough salt (i added 1 1/4 tsp ).
  • When the water evaporates and masalas started to coat the Channa switch off the flame.
  • Add lemon juice and mix it up well .
  • Serve it as a snack or prasad/neivedhyam.
