Black chickpeas sundal

I kind of had a short break from blogging.. Its been a long time since i took from everything in my life... this was a short and sweet break... did nothing but watching TV and cooking..hehehe.. that was fun... Good news from weight machine...I have lost 5 pounds so far with my strict diet and exercises..If u have read my post about Indian food calories... u will know what i am talking about...

Black chick pea sundal is one of my favorite evening snack/ meal before i head to gym. Black chick peas has 8.8gms of protein, 7.6 gms of fibre and zero saturated fat.. Even though it is high in carbs, provides great energy.. Little carbs are needed for metabolism to run properly...


1 cup Kala channa
1 onion
1 tsp each mustard seeds, channa dal, urad dal
3 green chillies
3 redcillies
salt to taste
1 tsp oil


Soak kala channa overnight. Add excess water and salt and cook in the cooker for 1 whistle. Strain the water and reserve channa. Heat oil in pan. Do the seasoning with mustard , channa and urad dal. Add finely chopped onion, green chillies and red chillies. Saute' till the onions become translucent. Add channa and fry for few minutes. Adjust salt. Remove from heat.. Serve hot!!!
