Chana Dal Fry(Mixture)

Ingredients:
2 cups Chana Dal / Bengal Gram seeds / Kadle Bele
1/4 cup Groundnut / Peanuts / Shenga
1/4 cup broken Cashew nuts
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Chilly powder
8 - 10 strands Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Black Gram seeds
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
Big Pinch of Asafetida powder
Salt to taste
Oil

Recipe:
Soak the chana dal in water for about 3 - 4 hrs. Wash them properly in water and drain.

Spread it in a clean cotton cloth and keep it aside for about 15-20 mins.

Keep oil in a thick bottomed vessel and heat it. Fry the soaked chana dal until they are crisp.


Take them from the oil and put them in a tissue paper to absorb the oil content.


Put mustard seeds, peanuts, black gram seeds,  2-3 tsp oil in a pan and fry them for about 2 mins in medium flame. Add broken cashew nuts and fry them in medium/low flame. Once they turn light golden in color, add curry leaves and fry them for about 1-2 mins in low flame. Add asafetida powder, turmeric powder and fry them for about 5-10 seconds in low flame.

Add fried chana dal, chilly powder, salt and mix them well.

Once it is cooled to room temperature, keep it in an airtight container. Serve along with coffee or tea.
