Chickpeas & Sprouted Green Gram Sundal | Healthy Indian Snack Recipe | Protein rich snack recipe


Chickpeas / Channa / Kondakadalai is one of my favorite and I love it almost any form be it pulao, sundal, curry, kurma, biryani and so on. Chickpeas is high in fibre and protien so they make you full and keep you full for long. i have read that they also have the power to reduce cholesterol - Including 3/4 cup (175 mL) of chickpeas in your diet each day can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, which reduces the risk of heart disease. Chickpeas can be used in salads, soups, curries, chilis, hummus and stews. Or consider roasting them with your favorite savory spices. Chickpea flour is gluten-free and can be used to make pakoras, pappadams or pancakes, or can serve as a substitute for eggs in baked goods.

Being someone who loves this legume. I love to make it quite often and enjoy it. This time around I had picked up some sprouted green gram and was lying around so I had included some of it to make this sundal. It was so filling that I had to skip dinner. Try and enjoy this sundal along with a cup of coffee/ tea

Cooks Wisdom

- You can used pre-cooked chickpeas/ store bought canned chickpeas (I prefer to soak the chickpeas over night and then pressure cook them for 3-4 whistles). Try to discard all the loose skin from the chickpeas before saute them

- If using whole green gram soak it overnight and pressure cook along with chickpeas
- You can also add shredded coconut for extra flavor at the end
