Soak the kala Chana or black chickpeas overnight. Next day, in the same soaked water, cook the chana in a pressure cooker till they are completely cooked. add more water if required in the cooker. Add salt too when cooking the chana. then strain the kala chana and keep aside. Don\\\'t drain the stock. it is rich in nutrients and can be used for making chapatis or added to breads, curries and even dals. Heat oil in a pan. add the mustard seeds and urad dal.

Now add the cooked black channa and salt. stir and saute for 4-5 minutes on a low to medium flame. switch off the flame and add the coconut. sprinkle the lemon juice. stir well.
