Kondakadalai sundal/Channa sundal

                  Kondakadalai sundal/Channa sundal

It is a simple flavoured dish.Usually during Ganesh chaturthy and Navarathri, here all prepare it for the festival. I got it from near by temple as prasadam with lemon rice.I never tasted it before.It is a healthy and nutritious recipe.A good snack for kids too.Chickpeas are rich in protein. Due to high fiber and low glycemic index it is excellent for weight loss diet.
