Kondai kadalai sundal is a popular South Indian snack made with chickpeas (kondai kadalai) that are boiled, seasoned with spices, and then sautéed. It is a healthy and flavorful snack that is often enjoyed during festivals or as an evening snack with tea or coffee. The chickpeas are typically cooked until they are soft but still firm, and then mixed with a blend of spices like mustard seeds, curry leaves, red chili powder, turmeric, and salt. Some variations may also include coconut, onions, or grated carrots for added flavor and texture. Kondai kadalai sundal is not only delicious but also a good source of protein and dietary fiber.
