Fried Chickpeas

Nei kadalai is one of my favorite snacks popular in Tirunelveli, Madurai and other surrounding places. It brings me back fond memories associated with this delicious savory during my childhood days. I still cherish those happy days with my father who used to bring nei kadalai and Tirunelveli halwa whenever he visited me as our family get-together is incomplete without crunchy spicy nei kadalai and gelatinous sweet halwa.
