Bhangur ~ Sookha Kala Chana

For Day 2, week 4 of BM #41, here is a last minute post which was suggested by my dietitian friend. 

A delightful blend of flavors which was enjoyed by the kids and adults alike.

Ingredients - 

Black Chickpeas / Nalla Senagalu / Kala Chana 1 cup
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Amchur Powder 1 tsp
Dhania-Jeera Powder 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder as needed
Lemon Juice (optional)
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Cumin Seeds 1 tsp, Asafoetida a pinch)

Bhangur ~ Sookha Kala Chana

Method Of Preparation -

Soak Kala Chana Over night and wash and pressure cook along with water to cover the cover the chana and salt.

After the chana is cooked, drain out the water and set aside. (Use this water for something else).

In a pan, heat oil and add cumin seeds. After the cumin seeds crackle, add the kala chana and the rest of the spices.

Mix well and remove from fire.

Squeeze in some lemon juice for some extra kick! Adjust the spice level as needed.
