Sookhe Kaale Chane - Ashtami Waale!

Soak 1 cup Kaale Chane (Black Chick Pea) overnight in water. Wash it thoroughly the next morning and pressure cook/boil them till cooked. They should not be mashed and still retain their shape.

Heat 1 tbsp of Mustard Oil in a kadhai. Add 1 tsp Jeera(Cumin) to it. Wait till it turns golden. Add the Kaale Chane and discard the water. Add 1 1/2 tsp Kala Namak, 1 tsp Bhoona Jeera (Jeera - dry roasted and powdered), 1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder.

Mix all the ingredients together and keep it on the fire for 1-2 minutes more. Take it off the fire and add 2tsp Lemon Juice to taste. Simple!!
