  2. After cool down drain the water and spread it on the dry cloth for 2hrs. (completely dried out)
  3. Then lightly roast the channa/chickpeas in a other pan and transfer into hot oil. Fry for longer time until crunchy and golden brown in color.  check in between the chickpeas. In the same oil fry curry leaves
