health benefits of chick peas, i started enjoying this recipe. You cannot find a recipe with chick peas thats easier than this one, wanna bet?
I am calling this a salaté because its a combination of sauté and salad (taking a bow). May be i will have an eponym after my name in my next birth. No judging people.
This sauté-salad is perfect as a side, or you can use it in tacos, or simply snack on it in the evenings.
Chick pea - 1 cup
Cooking Oil - 3 tablespoon
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
Bengal gram/Channa dal - 1 tablespoon
Onion - 3/4 cup / 1 large onion - chopped
Green chilli - 8 finely chopped (you can add more or less to make it hot or mild)
Salt - add to your taste
pressure cook them with 4 cups of water, few drops of oil and salt. I used an Indian style pressure cooker, and let 4 whistles on medium heat before turning off the flame. You can also quick-soak pressure cook these beans if you don't have time to soak the beans. You can prep your veggies (onions and chillis here) while the chickpeas are cooking. Once cooked, drain the excess water, and keep the cooked chickpeas aside.
In a pan, add cooking oil and once hot, add mustard seeds. Let it splutter, then add bengal gram. Once the bengal gram turns golden brown, add the chopped onions, green chillis and salt to taste. Sauté until the onions turn translucent or cooked. Now add the cooked chick peas, mix and cook for a minute or two and its done! Told you its gonna be easy.
