Chana Sundal / Tempered Chick peas

Happy Dussera to all my dear friends. Vijaya Dashami or Dussera is an important festival celebrated in India and Nepal. Dussera or Dasha Hara (in Sanskrit) means removal of ten bad qualities (anger, lust, greed, jealousy to name a few) in you . Vijaya Dashami means victory over these bad qualities. The first nine days are celebrated as Navaratri while the tenth day is Vijaya Dashami or Dussera.
Today , I will share with you all a dish that I prepare often during Navaratri "CHANA SUNDAL". It's a simple vegan recipe where cooked chick peas are tempered and flavored with some lime juice and loads of fresh grated coconut. Chana Sundal can be served as a snack with coffee or tea or as a side. This protein rich dish makes a great lunch box option too.
