One of the themes for this Marathon is "Cooking with Colors". I chose brown color, for the ever healthy and tasty Brown Channa Dal Sundal. This Sundal is rich in proteins and very good for people of all ages.
Brown Channa dal - 2 cups
Coconut scrappings - 1/2 cup
Salt - as required
Olive oil - 2 tsp
Curry leaves and Mustard seeds - for seasoning
Soak the Brown Channa Dal the previous night
Wash well and steam cook it till done
You can use a pressure cooker to cook the Channa Dal
Drain the water and keep it aside.
This water will be rich in protein, you can add some salt and pepper to it and drink it just like that
In a wide skillet, add olive oil.
Add mustard seeds , as they sputter add the curry leaves
Add the boiled Channa Dal
Mix well and adjust salt
Remove the Sundal from the fire and then add fresh coconut scrapping to it
Mix well till the Channa Dal and coconut blends well
