Chana Dal Snacks / ಕಡಲೆಬೇಳೆ ಸ್ನ್ಯಾಕ್ಸ್

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

My hubby loves to have a cup of tea once he is back from office. If he comes home bit early, I would like to prepare some or the other snacks along with tea. We both enjoy having some snacks while watching the TV programs. My sister used to prepare this kind of snacks at the evening time. Thanks to my dear sister for this recipe :)
Don't get confused, its chana dal & not sweetcorn ;)


Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Soaking Time: 1 hour
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
Chana dal - 1 1/2 cup
2 green chillies - chopped
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 table spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 spoon
Pinch of asafoetida
Oil - 1 spoon
Lime squeeze - for taste
Salt to taste

Method:
Soak chana dal for at-least 1 hour.
Heat around 1 spoon of oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and let it splutter. 
Then, add chopped green chillies and saute for a minute. 
Add soaked chana dal and asafoetida. Add salt and 1/4th cup of water.
Cook it closed for 5 minutes and saute it 1 - 2 times occasionally.
Once the chana dal is 3/4th cooked and the water is evaporated, switch off the flame and add lime squeeze and chopped coriander leaves.
Serve it hot with a cup of tea!


Tips:
  • Don't cook the chana dal till very soft. Otherwise, it will not be nice to eat.
