Black chickpeas (Nalla chanagala) Guggullu

Last Updated on


Chick pea provides a good source of protien for vegetarians like me. A lite and a healthy snack to munch in the evening.

• Dry black chickpeas( nalla sanagalu/ kala chana)- 1cup ( soak over night and cook in pressure cooker till soft, but still holding its shape)
• Two green chilles chopped
• Half onion chopped
• Few Cilantro( coriander) leaves
• Fresh lemon juice
• Grated coconut- 2 tsps
• Curry leaves

Cook the dry chickpeas and do a quick sauté by adding two teaspoons of oil, few mustard seed, half teaspoon of chana dal, green chille, hing and onion. Cook till onion becomes little soft. Then add the cooked black chick peas and salt and finish it of with grated coconut and fresh lemon juice.

Note: You can skip the onion if you are making for prasadam.
