Call it Chaat or a snack, this Chana dish is simple and easy to make! We call them ‘Shenagalu’ in Telugu. I have eaten this snack in Hyd where the street vendor tosses boiled chana, onions, tomatoes, coriander and lime juice in masala powder and wraps up in an old newspaper! Those of you from Hyderabad will know when I say street food @ Eat Street & Tankbund. Chana is also served as Prasadam in temples where they temper with mustard seeds and fresh grated coconut.You could make it either way..I was just in the mood for chaat!!
1 cup black chana soaked overnight for 8-12 hours
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 tbsps of fresh grated coconut
1 tsp Chaat masala
Soak the chana (I have used the black type) for 8- 12 hours.
Pressure cook the chana for 2-3 whistles.
Let the cooker cool down before draining the water.
Set aside the drained chana in a mesh strainer for 15-30 min
Combine chana with onion, tomato, chaat masala and grated coconut.
Toss the ingredients with lime juice and garnish with coriander.
