Channa dal snack

The streets of India are filled with tons of vendors.  From food to clothes to a mini-convenient store to toys to grocery.  They come with carts or large baskets on top of their head or hung around their necks. One of our favorite snacks sold many times by teens looking to make a buck, is spicy tangy channa dal.  Here's the semi-homemade recipe.

Serving size 5
3 cups of pre-packaged fried channa dal (usually its seasoned with cayenne pepper and salt)
1/2 finely chopped red onion
juice of 1/2 lemon
Cayenne pepper to add extra spice

1) heat a non stick pan over medium heat
2) add the 3 cups of dal, stir occasionally for 10 minutes
3) add onions, cilantro, and lemon juice.  for extra kick sprinkle more cayenne pepper with more lemon juice

This snack usually comes in an easy-to-eat cone made of old newspapers.  I chose to rip out some pages from magazines, articles that we discussed during our meet :)  I also lined the insides of the cones with parchment paper.

super easy! super fun! super delicious! #superisasuperfunword
