spicy lentil soup with protein rich Chickpeas
Chickpeas is rich in protein and a very healthy pulse. Apart from usual sundal, we can add chickpeas to sambar, kuzhambu etc. This is one simple sambar variety resembles much as vathakuzhambu served in marriages but with only one twist of adding mashed dal. So we can follow the same vathakuzhambu method but with extra ingredients such as chickpeas and dal. Also the seasoning ingredients will add a extra flavor to the dish.
Most of us frequently make Chole Masala, Chana Pulao, Chickpeas Salad etc. In addition to these regular recipes with chickpeas, I love to make Chickpeas Dosai, Chickpeas and coriander Soup and Falafel. My MIL makes this regularly and she calls this another version of vathakuzhambu. Generally in vathaluzhambu we don’t add toor dal and also we won’t use coconut.
