Deep fried Chickpea tossed with spices!        

Ingredients (ಬೇಕಾಗುವ ಪದಾರ್ಥಗಳು):
2 cups Chickpea (Garbanzo | Chana)  |  ಬಿಳಿ ಕಡ್ಲೆ (ಚನ | ಕಾಬುಲಿ ಕಡ್ಲೆ)
2 - 3 strands of Curry leaves  |  ಕರಿ ಬೇವಿನ ಸೊಪ್ಪು
1/2 tsp Chat Masala  |  ಚಾಟ್ ಮಸಾಲಾ
Salt to taste  |  ರುಚಿಗೆ ತಕ್ಕಷ್ಟು ಉಪ್ಪು
1/2 - 3/4 tsp Chilly powder  |  ಮೆಣಸಿನ ಹುಡಿ
1/3 tsp Pav Bhaji Masala  |  ಪಾವ್ ಭಾಜಿ ಮಸಾಲಾ 
Oil  |  ಎಣ್ಣೆ

Soak the chickpea in water for 8-10 hrs. Wash them in water for about 2-3 times.

Add enough water, little amount of salt and pressure cook for 1 whistle on high flame.
Drain the water content and put it on a cotton cloth for around 1-2 hrs to remove the water content as shown in the picture below. Make sure that all the water content is removed.

Keep oil in a heavy bottomed vessel and heat. Once it is hot, add this chickpeas and fry them in medium flame until it's crispy. Put curry leaves and fry it in oil for few seconds.

Remove this from oil and place this in a tissue paper to absorb the extra oil. Add all the dry ingredients, fried curry leaves and mix them well.

Once it comes to room temperature store this in a airtight container. Serve along with tea/coffee.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):
 * Don't overcook the Chickpea in Pressure Cooker. Cooking it in a pressure cooker before frying will make it crunchy & crispy
 * To remove excess oil after frying,  cover the fried Chickpea in a Paper towel for abt 30 mins before mixing the Masala
 * ಕಡ್ಲೆಯನ್ನು ಕುಕ್ಕರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ತುಂಬಾ ಬೇಯಿಸಬೇಡಿ. ಒಂದು ಸೀಟಿ ಸಾಕು. ಕಡ್ಲೆಯನ್ನು ಬೇಯಿಸಿ ಎಣ್ಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹುರಿಯುವುದರಿಂದ ಮೃದುವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ
 * ಕಡ್ಲೆಯನ್ನು ಎಣ್ಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹುರಿದ ಮೇಲೆ, ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಅಂಶವನ್ನು ತೆಗೆಯಲು, ಮಸಾಲೆ ಬೆರೆಸುವ ಮೊದಲು ಟಿಶ್ಯೂ ಪೇಪರ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಸುತ್ತಿ 30 ನಿಮಿಷ ಇಡಿ
