04/15/2012: Kala Chana Snack / Dry Black Chickpea Snack - Sometimes I make this for breakfast, healthy and heavy enough that I dont feel hungry right until lunch time. Easy to make, only thing is I need to remember to soak them the night before, which is the hardest part to remember...he he he.
Procedure: Soak a cup of Kala Chana in water the night before (or at least 8 hrs). The next morning drain the water out. Now add little water and microwave for a min so the Chana gets softened a bit. In a small pan, heat 1 tsp Oil. To it add 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds, 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds, 1 small Green Chill chopped, two to three Curry Leaves, a pinch of Turmeric and Hing. Once the Spices fry well, add the Chana and Salt. Stir well, leave for few minutes. Serve hot or cold for breakfast.
