  • 1 cup Chana Dal (Split Bangal Gram)
  • 1 ½ tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • ½ tsp Chaat Masala
  • ¼ tsp Black Salt
  • Salt as per taste


First Wash and soak Chana Dal for 5-6 hrs or overnight or 2-3 hrs in lukewarm water. Dal should be perfectly soaked else it wont turn perfect.

Place them on a big muslin cloth and allow it to dry for at least 15-20 minutes or till there is no water and they are dry.

Heat the oil in a deep pan, dip the strainer in it and put the chana dal in it and deep-fry on a medium flame till it turns crisp. This would take approx. 7 to 8 minutes. Fry in batches. Dal should be crunchy not too hard.

Once done take out the strainer and put fried dal on absorbant paper to take out access oil if any. Add all species , mix well and store into air tight container.. Keep munching.

One can oven roast too . Roast soaked dal at 200C for 18 to 20 mins. Add all spices and your crunchy munchy Spiced Bangal Gram is ready.

Hope you all will like it.

Happy Cooking 🙂 :
