Recipes for Poets

 In honor of  Deb Ager's foodie event, here's our contribution--
Shundal  (a traditional snack for the Indian women’s festival of Golu)
 2 C cooked garbanzo beans
½ C grated coconut
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tablespoon urad dal (white gram beans)
1 chili, chopped or grated
salt to taste
1 tsp turmeric

In a pan, heat the oil. Add mustard seeds, and fry. Remember to put a lid on the pan while the seeds are frying—they pop. Reduce to medium heat, add the urad dal, and cook to golden brown. Add turmeric. Add the chili. Sauté the garbanzo beans for five minutes. Add coconut.
