Green chana sundal, Chana sundal, Chickpeas sundal

Green chana or Hara chana or choliya is one variety of chana from the legume family that is light, little sweet and yummy to taste like any other desi chana. This chana is green in color as it is picked at a much earlier stage hence not artificially colored. So I was totally unaware of any facts about green chana and dint know one such chickpeas existed, I happened to see it in an Indian store and picked it up. And when I told about this to my best friend Sneha she had told all about its goodness, about its harvest and much details and reminded of Navaratri recipes for this year. So many many thanks to her. So here is a simple yet delicious sundal recipe for this navaratri. A preparation similar to regular black chana/ white chana sundal. So lets get to the making!
