Sundal/Easy Chickpeas salad

Two weeks back My niece has sent a link with this recipe....This is a nice andra pradesh recipe called 'sundal'......Which is quite similar to a salad which we prepare from black chick peas....

This recipe is also very yummy.....its very easy to prepare......

Chickpeas 2 cup (Chana)
Oil 2 TBSP(Use coconut oil, it will give more taste)
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
2 Red Chilies (into pieces)
3 -4 Curry Leaves
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp (or can use grated ginger)
2 Green Chilies (into pieces)
Coconut (grated)1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Raw mango finely chopped or grated- 1/4 cup (optional)
Juice of two lemons(use only if ur not using mango)

How to make Sundal:

Soak chickpeas in water overnight. Drain, add fresh water and cook until soft but not mushy.Drain excess water from cooked chickpeas, retaining about 3-4 tablespoons.

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and allow it to splutter. Then, add red chili,green chilies curry leaves and asafetida (or grated ginger)to it.

Now add chickpeas, and salt to the above. Simmer for 3-4 minutes.Add grated coconut and grated mango to the above and mix it well. Turn off the flame.

Serve hot with a cup of tea or coffee...
