Chickpeas Sundal With Sesame

          It's Navaratri time, though we don't celebrate this nine day long festival, I love to see the Golu at my friends'. I see that the festival mood has caught up with the bloggers too, I see a lot of sundals and other goodies in many of the blogs. I have a couple of them, in my space too,Chickpeas Sundal and Chana Dal Sundal, thought I'll share another one today. This is also made out of chickpeas, here I have made a small change to the regular sundal recipe. I have added sesame seeds which give a nice flavor to it, try it if you like sesame seeds..

Need To Have

  • Cooked Chickpeas - 11/2 cup
  • White Sesame Seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • Grated Coconut - 1 tablespoon
  • Red Chillies - 2
  • Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida - 1/8 teaspoon
  • Curry Leaves - 5


          Roast the sesame seeds and red chillies in a few drops of oil, when the sesame seeds turn golden, remove, cool, make a coarse powder with the coconut.

          Heat some oil, add the mustard seeds, when it starts spluttering, add the curry leaves and asafoetida followed by the cooked chickpeas, ground powder and salt. Reduce the heat and keep mixing it for 3 to 5 minutes, till you get the nice sesame flavor. Remove and serve it warm.

Soak overnight and pressure cook the chickpeas with some salt and use.
If you don't like sesame seeds, just leave it and use dry chillies and coconut alone.
