Chattambade is a deep fried snack prepared with Chick Pea lentil(Channa Daal). Very tasty and goes well on a rainy day or in winter months with a cup of hot coffee or tea.

1. Channa Daal - 1 cup
2. Byadgi dry chillies - 2 
3. Green chillies - 3-4 
4. Curry leaves - 1 sprig ( 12 leaves )
5. Black pepper - 4 crushed
6. Grated coconut 1/2 cup or coconut bits(Kaatthali chooru) 1/2 cup
7. Hing a pinch
8. Ginger, a small piece chopped(Optional)
9. Oil for deep frying
10. Salt to taste

Soak chana dal for 2 hrs, remove from the water and keep it aside for sometime.
Chop green chillies and curry leaves keep it aside.
Grind chana dal, dry red chillies without adding water, to a very coarse paste(it should be dry. Do not make a smooth paste, if there is whole daal in it, its fine. It will taste good when you fry it.) add salt and crushed black pepper.
Remove the ground masala from mixer/blender and mix it with green chillies, curry leaves, hing water and grated coconut/coconut bits. Optionally you may add chopped ginger.
Make small balls press with your palm to make it flat. Keep oil to heat and deep fry on a low flame till crisp and golden red.
