This is a special kind of Channa Sundal, which I learnt from a relative of mine, while I was visiting the US. Normally, Channa Sundal is quite bland, does not have any flavour of its own. So, this idea fascinated me a lot, and here I am, sharing that with you all. This Sundal is also a Neivedhyam for Jagadamba, in the form of  Durga, on the first day of Navarathri.

Kabuli channa, soaked over night - 3/4 cup
Salt to taste
Fresh grated coconut - 2 tsps

To grind
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Ginger - a smallpiece
Green chillies - 2

To Season
Gingely oil - 2 tsps
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
