How to Make Channa Doss

HideShow Media
Boil the daal with the salt and enough water to be absorbed by the lentils when cooked through, and then let it cool.
Blend to a paste and place in a heavy based pan along with coconut milk, cardamoms and sugar and mix well. Place over low heat, and stir till the sugar dissolves.
Bring to a boil, and cook to thicken the mixture, stirring to prevent it from scorching. When the mixture collects together and does not flow any more it is the right thickness.
Transfer on to the greased plate, level it by wetting your spatula with water (to avoid sticking), and leave to set.
When cool and set, cut into squares or diamonds arrange in a serving dish, and serve.
