Sundal

Recipe by  

"Sundal is a traditional south Indian dish (originally from Tamil Nadu) prepared for naivedyam (Prasad) for poojas. Sundal is very tasty and very nutritious too. I can eat it by the bowlful. Sundal is prepared using different legumes. I like this version with white chickpeas the most."

Directions

  1. Place the chickpeas into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; allow to soak for 8 hours or overnight. Drain.
  2. Combine the chickpeas and 3 cups water in a large pot over medium heat; cook until the chickpeas are tender, but not yet mushy, 30 to 45 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the urad dal, mustard seeds, and dried red chile peppers in the hot oil. When the seeds begin to splutter, add the chickpeas, green chile peppers, mango, coconut, curry leaves, and asafoetida powder; season with salt. Mix well and cook until completely heated, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice. Serve warm or at room temperature.

We liked this dish. I`ve never tried chickpeas with sweet things before. Very interesting flavor and very easy to make too. I guess it will be the easiest thing if you use canned chickpeas.
