A perfect healthy snack for all times, Indians usually buy these ready-made, but when I discovered how easily they can be made at home, I could not resist to share my happiness. It is very high in protein and a perfect snack if you’re on a low carb diet. So let’s make these super simple grams at home. A secret to this recipe is my mom. She is the one who taught me.
Ingredients (Serves 3)
- 2 cups of brown grams
- 1 tbsp. milk
- ½ tsp. turmeric powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 500 gms. Salt to roast them
- In a bowl pour the grams, add 1tbsp milk, turmeric powder and 1 tsp. salt, mix well. Now spread them out in a cloth and place them outside to dry. It necessarily does not need the sun to dry, so do not worry, even shade dry can work
- Once you see the wetness of milk has dried up, in a pan put 500gms salt. Let the salt heat and place handful chana (grams) into it and mix well.
- Surprise surprise they shall pop out itself and trust me you will be so happy to see them pop. Use a spotted spatula to remove the popped grams out from the salt. Repeat the process for the rest and enjoy!
