Let it be in high flame for few mins,till all the mositure evaporates, then add the grated coconut, give a good mix and switch off the flame.
Tasty and healthy Kondakadalai/White Chickpeas Sundal is ready.
  • Salt will not be absorbed by chickpeas after cooking,so add salt, while cooking the chickpeas itself.
  • I left with around 1 tbsp of cooked water of chana, so i added it along with chana while tempering.If you have more cooked water, add the enough & discard the remaining.
  • Adding the cooked water while tempering helps the chana to avoid dry easily and also it helps channa to absorb the spiciness from chili.
