Chana Masala Sundal Recipe - Aren't people looking for healthy diet options nowadays which is not junk? During winter we do feel extra hungry especially in the evenings. We'd be thrilled  if there was something to eat with a hot cup of tea, something spicy and tasty on these days.  I am here to share with you a super healthy, tasty and a tad spicy evening snack which is prepared by a lovely friend Hema Balaji.

Couple of weeks back we went on a mountaineering trip and she brought us this sundal. The sundal tasted awesome and I liked it a lot. This week I had planned sundal and ended up making her version of the recipe. Even though it was a bit late I did manage to click couple of pictures for posting the recipe. This is an absolute teatime snack as well as picnic food. I tried it as an accompaniment with chapatis as well it tasted really apt. Hope you all love this recipe as I loved it. Here I wish to thank Hema Balaji her for allowing me to share her recipe.

Wishing all my readers a year full of happy moments & memories!!! Wishing you all good luck, good health and good cheer in this New year 2018!
