CHICK PEAS SALAD AKA SENAGALA TALIMPU

Me and my sister were going through Chandra Padmanabhan's Dakshin.Suddenly on page 100 we saw this recipe-Sundal(chick peas salad).Then my sister reminded my mom that she was asking for this salad from the past ???.Immediately without second thought she soaked chick peas that day itself and finally Amma had to make it.I am glad that she enjoyed eating this.To make it colourful amma added grated carrot,onion and raw mango.
