1. Soak the black chickpeas overnight or for 8 hours. You can use the white chickpeas as well for the same recipe. If you want to do it quickly, you can just use the canned ones. Pressure cook the chickpeas for 3 whistles. It really depends on your cooker. Mine takes about 3 to cook well. It should hold its shape and yet be soft.
2. Once the pressure goes down, strain the water and keep the chickpeas aside. Heat oil in the same cooker and add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering add asafoetida, green chilli, and curry leaves. Fry it for a minute.
3. Now add the drained chickpeas and salt. Let it cook for about 2 minutes. Finally add the grated coconut and switch of the stove. This is something I make for any festival at home as an offering to God. Later it is of course for myself.
