Masala Chana Dal / Spicy Yellow Lentils

As a kid in India we used to travel by train a lot, so whenever the vendors came inside the coach with nice , tempting snack items we so tempted to buy those. But our elders warned us that its not hygenic and not good to eat because you don't know how  they made it or the person's own hygenic who is making these. The most popluar snacks were masala chana dal, masala Cucumber, dal wada, nimbu pani, gathia and of course tea and coffee. One day at home here, I  was thinking about those days and those snacks comes to my mind and I get up and made Masala chana Dal and I take pictures as it was given in train too. It's easy, tasty and chatpata. You can adjust taste as per your liking.

Ingredients:

2 cups Masala Chana dal

1 half red onion finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
1 green chili finely chopped
1 cucumber finely chopped
lime juice as per taste
1 tsp chat masala or as per taste
1 big spoon of fresh coriander chopped

Method:

Mix everything in bowl and enjoy it with hot cup of tea or as it is.

    1. Soak dal for 8 hours then spread it on cloth. take very hot oil and add dal and fry it, then add salt,pepper, haldi and citric acid. same way you can do mung dal and mung beans too.
