Soak Chana Overnight or atleast 8 hours and pressure cook it with little bit salt and water just to immerse it for 4-5 whistles.

Heat oil in a pan then add mustard seeds when they pop add urad dal ,red chillies,curry leaves,asafoetida and stir for a minute. Add the cooked chana drained from water.


Stir fry for 2 minutes until moisture evaporates.
Then add required salt and grated or scarped coconut and fry for a minute. Switch off the flame.

  • You can add chopped onions after tempering. .
  • Also you can replace red chillies with green chillies.
  • Add little salt while cooking. This prevents over cooking of chana.
  • If the soaking hour of chana is less, then adding salt will prevent chana from cooking properly.So at that time add salt after cooking chana.
  • You can use the same method for cooking green gram,or chana dal sundal
