Navratri Special ~ Guggillu – Tempered Chickpeas

Print version of Navratri Special ~ Guggillu – Tempered Chickpeas

Guggillu aka Sundal is nothing but tempering chickpeas (kabuli chana or garbanzo beans). This recipe with chickpeas is made as an offering to Durga Ma as a Navratri special item.

Boiled chickpeas are lightly browned in a pan, but what makes it special is the toasted spices like mustard seeds and asafoetida combined with fresh curry leaves, plus a sprinkling of fresh grated coconut.

    I think we need to soak them for more than 5-6 hours. Can you comment on this?

      Recipe updated. Chickpeas have to be soaked in water over night or at least 6-7 hrs.

    Thanks Sailaja for the update. I generally soak them overnight while preparing chole masala. But for preparing the prasadam for an evening during Ganesh festive season, I soaked them may be for 5 hours and so I had to boil chana twice. So when I read your recipe, I was searching for the optimum time required to soak the chana. Writing such very basic things will help novice cooks like me :-)
