Garbanzo Sundal

My mom's place is near Marina beach. Beach is just 2 bus stops from my house. When I was in school, during summer vacation, we often go to marina beach with few of my friends who live near by and we will have fun. Usually my dad joins us. He used to get this sundal from a brahmin boy who used to sell this sundal in Marina beach everyday after his school. It used to be really good. I tried to follow the same recipe and it came out exactly the same:-)

  1. Garbanzo Beans - 1 cup
  2. Raw Mango - little less than 1/4 cup
  3. Coconut - 2 tbsp
  4. Oil - 1 tsp
  5. mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  6. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  7. Red chillies - 1
  8. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  9. Salt to taste

Soak garbanzo beans for about 6 hours. Cook it adding a pinch of salt. Keep it aside. In the mean time, cut mango and coconut evenly into very tiny pieces. Take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add urad dhall, red chillies and asafoetida powder and fry it till it becomes golden brown. Now add the cooked garbanzo beans, add mango and coconut pieces, adjust salt and mix it well. Turn off the stove. Serve it hot and can have it as evening snack. As we all know, garbanzo beans is rich in protein and mango is rich in vitamin C which is very essential for the kids during winter days.

It looks delicious.
This type of beans are typical here in Portugal. We use them in stews, salads and with codfish.
