prasadam-------Kaddale Ogarne ( Sundal)

As shravan month is going on i thought why not dedicate few recipes to prasadam.Shravan month is considered as the holiest month of the year.These few months always that is august,September and even October is a months which have lots of festival line up.
My mother celebrate more or less all the festivals and same way i too like to do that and try to do at least half of what my mother do.
Any pooja or function or any special occasion means lots of sweets and prasadam.Prasadam is a  food which is prepared without anyone touched and tasted and offered to god.this special food is then distributed to people as prasadam as a mark of the end of the pooja and to give gods blessings to everybody in the form of prasadam.

One of the special and sacred offering which is commonly we do for god is sundal.This can be prepared with many things here i am sharing Chickpeas(chana) sundal.

1 cup Kabuli Chana(chickpeas)
5-6 green chilies cut into half split
1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
2" ginger(optional) grated
1" jaggary(optional)
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp urad dal
1 tsp chana dal
10 curry leaves cut into pieces
2 red chilies broken into pieces

Soak the chickpeas overnight.
Next day pressure cook this chickpeas adding little water,salt and jaggary.
Take a pan add seasoning,when mustard start spluttering add green chili,ginger and stir for 1 minute.
Finally add cooked chickpeas,remaining salt and stir it properly.
