Fresh Chickpea Salad/Fresh Green Chickpea Sundal

This is one of my favorite winter time snack , healthy and tasty. Only trouble is taking out the channa from its pod.You can use frozen too but nothing like fresh from the pods. I usually add some grated coconut at the end but if you don't like sprinkle some chat or garam masala.

Chickpea - 1 cup , shelled and cooked
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Green Chilli - 2 tsp , finely chopped
Coconut - 1/8 cup ,freshly grated
Hing /Asafetida- 1/4 tsp
Curry Leaves - a few.
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp

1. Cook  chickpea with salt ,drain and keep aside.
2. Heat oil in a frying pan and hing and mustard and cover.
3. When mustard starts to pop, add green chilli ,curry leaves and chickpea .
4. Cook for a minute and add fresh coconut and remove from flame.
