Pasta Sundal - Brown Channa and pasta sundal - Spicy Brown Channa and pasta salad - Pooja Recipes - Naivedyam Recipes

This is one of the fusion dishes. It definitely will impress your little guests as it will have their favourite pasta. It is one of the dishes which can feed your choosy eaters. This is a perfect starter for your party. I have used black chickpea but you can add any whole bean. Make sure the bean is nicely cooked and not so mushy. Same for the pasta too. I have added 1:1/2 portion for bean to pasta. You can adjust based on your preference. I have used Dabeli masala for seasoning it. However you can use Sundal masala or your favourite seasoning.
