Kala Channa Sundal/ Black Chick Pea Salad

My husband and I love this type of sundal. I try to make sundal  often to balance our proteinn intake. This is really simple and you can just have it as a salad or as side dish to rice. I usually try to sprout it for more fiber but today I dint really have time to let it sprout so I just made this sundal. 

Ingredients:

Black Chickpea/ Kala channa - 1 cup soaked overnight
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Coconut - 1 -2 tbsp grated
Asafoetida - a pinch
Mustard - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp

Preparation:

Cook chickpea ( with some salt )separately and leave it aside. 

In a pan, heat oil and add mustard. when it splutters, add cumin seeds and asafoetida. Add the cooked chickpea and saute for about a min. Taste and check if you need more salt. Add accordingly. 
Mix in the grated coconut and turn off heat. Serve hot.
