    Ever since seeing this episode I've been wanting to make this recipe as it sounded so tasty. I was finally able to acquire all the ingredients so I gave it a shot and I was not disappointed. The Jhal Muri was very flavourful with a great mixture of crunchy, crisp, salty, warm, hot, sour and sweet.
    Had I been able to find fried Channa Dal it would have been a quick dish to prepare but I had to make my own so it became a bit time consuming. I seasoned with salt. Don't forget the salt if you make this.
