Diwali the festival of lights is fast approaching. Making a variety of sweets and savory snacks is a normal ritual.This year is a low key affair . Even then we are treating ourselves with a lot of sweet and savory dishes. It is an important festival in the Hindu calendar as it is to celebrate the victory of good over evil. It is celebrated in all parts of the world with great fervor and harmony. I would like to share with you another lip smacking recipe of Masaledar Channa dal(Snack). It is quick and easy to prepare especially for people like me who are working from home .
What is Channa dal ?
Chana Dal are brown chickpeas that have been split and skinned/polished. They have thesame earthy and nutty flavor as brown chickpeas. They are widely used in Indian cuisine . We can make dal, vada, or snacks like the one i am sharing here, parathas, sprouts ,salad (kosambari) ,sundal etc..

Chana Dal looks so spicy and tempting.. must be so flavourful with all the spices used here..I just love this to munch with my evening tea.. thanks for this awesome recipe.. will try
Looks so delicious Preethi and ideal to binge as a snack. I too want to make this one now.
I first thought, you have deep fried the chana dal but you have roasted it. Such a healthy delicious treat. Loved tje idea of adding kanda lahsun masala to give a spicy kick to the snack.
Wow loved that bright colour of the masaledar channa dal. Roasting it makes it more healthy and I didn’t realise it immediately after seeing the pics. They look crispy.
Chana Dal looks so chatpati and very much inviting, i’m sure they must be so flavorful. It looks absolutely yummy. Homemade namkeen are always best. I have never tried this namkeen at home, thanks for sharing. I will give a try soon.
Wow Preethi, a healthier version of masaledar channa dal. Usually its deep fried but like your method of roasting the dal in little oil. Just love how the masala coats each and every dal. Super tempting.
I love this snack. It’s healthy, crunchy, and yummy. Very filling too. It’s been a long time since I made this snack. Your post reminded me to make this again.
We always make chana dal namkeen at home on holi but you make it more healthier by roasting. It looks so spicy. Yumm
WOw, i can have these anytime of a day.. Love the fact that these are roasted with less oil instead of deep frying. So masaledar post !
Chana dal snack is looking so scrumptious and delicious. So crispy and crunchy. Just loving the healthy twist you have given to it. Will surely try this recipe soon.
Love the way you have roasted the chana dal instead of deep frying that makes it guilt free. I make it almost same way except addition of dried fenugreek leaves and lahsun masala . It makes it more flavorful.
