Baked Channa Dal- Haldiram's Style

Who doesn't like to eat fried channa dal, but what if the same dish is converted into baked one with only 1 tbsp of oil. Oh yes! its like a craving come true :) There are very famous brand of snacks in India which are liked by all of us like Haldirams, Bikaji, Samrat etc. I love Haldiram's Fried Channa Dal, so I thought of making it baked. Every diwali I wanted to eat this dish and one day my mom baked it for me; It was tasty, when I ate it all she told me that it was baked;).So this Diwali lets make Baked Channa Dal
Channa Dhal-1cup
Salt-to taste
Red Chilli Powder-To taste
Olive Oil-1tbsp

Wash and soak channa dhal for 2hours.
Drain water and spread it out on cloth to absorb extra mositure.
When dal is dry, take a bowl and mix oil, salt and red chilli on it. Mix dal and spices well.
Take a baking tray and line it with foil. Spread the prepared channa dal on the foil.
At a Preheat oven to 200C. Bake the dal until golden brown. It takes around 10-12 minutes. 
When you will take it out from oven, it looks soft but when cooled it becomes crunchy.
