Channa Sundal

Cold evenings are upon us and I love me some steaming hot sundal. Sundal is nothing but you make some tadka and add it to you steamed lentils. As we know lentils are very healthy and I love them, I’m hoping to have more sundal throughout the winter. If I could eat this everyday I would but then who can endure fart fest everyday? xD This is a southindian snack and many of you may not be aware of it so here’s how I make it.  channa_sundal You will need
  1. Chickpeas/channa- 1/2 cup
