Garbanzo Beans Sundal(கொத்துக்கடலை சுண்டல்)

Sundal is a very popular evening snack which is quick, easy, healthy, filling – too many good things together. It can be prepared in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. This is also a festive snack prepared during Navarathri. Since I am using garbanzo beans can, it is easier and less time consuming. If using the regular garbanzo beans, then soak overnight and pressure cook for at least 5 whistles before method 2.

Garbanzo Beans – 1 Can
Salt – ½ tea spoon
Coconut Grated – 2 table spoon
Curry Leaves – 5 chopped
Oil – ½ tea spoon
Mustard Seeds – ½ tea spoon
Red Chili – 2 or 3
Cumin Seeds – ¼ tea spoon
Asafetida – A pinch
Green Chili - 2

MethodOpen the garbanzo beans can and drain the water and clean the beans once with running water to remove the stickiness.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds
Once the mustard seeds start to crackle, add cumin seeds, red chili, curry leaves and green chili.
After 15 seconds, add the garbanzo beans, asafetida and mix well
Once mixed well, add coconut and remove from heat
Transfer to the serving bowl and now the sundal is ready to be served.

Points to note - Information on garbanzo beans (from wikipedia) – Its seeds are high in protein and one of the earliest cultivated vegetables, 7500 year old remains have been found in the middle east. They are a helpful source of zinc, folate, protein and rich in dietary fiber making them a very healthy carbohydrate
