Chickpeas With Raisins (dratchai Kalanda Sundal)

I love foods that are little sweeter. Usually we use to make sundal in festive seasons like Dasara and Ganesh chatruthi. This time I have tried the recipe with slight variation. To make it little sweeter I add Raisins. Salty chickpeas with sweet Raisins gives a different taste like 50-50. !!!

White chickpeas - 200 grams
Grated coconut - 2 tablespoon
Raisins - 50 Grams (ularnda dratchai)
Red chilli - 2
Salt - As needed
Oil - 1 Tablespoon
Curry leaves - 6
Mustard seeds - 1 Teaspoon
Black gram raw - 1 Tablespoon
Soak the White chickpeas overnight with enough water. (if you want to cook morning)
In a pressure cooker cook the chickpeas with enough water and salt.
Cook till 3 whistles and drain the water.
Heat a pan with oil and splutter mustard seeds.
Add broken red chilli and Curry leaves.
Then add the cooked sundal (chickpeas) and mix well in the heat for 3 minutes.
Finally add Grated coconut and Raisins.
Mix it in heat for 1 minute and switch off the gas.
Serve it hot.
