Green Chana Sundal is a nutritious, tasty snack made by tempering overnight soaked chana with coconut, spices and onion. Green Chana Sundal is a healthy snack for evening tea time compared to the packed biscuits and is quick to make. Green Chana Sundal is a must try during Navarathri.
The first time I heard about this Hara Chana or Green Chana was from my cousin, so this year I bought a small pack to try a simple sundal with it.It tastes similar to brown channa so you can try this for a change for Navratri.
