White Channa Sundal

Sundal is a traditional dish made as “Neivedyam” on Vinayaka Chathurthi and during Navarathri festivals. It is a healthy snack too and diabetic friendly. Sundal can be made with any of the  dry pulses.

Today, being Vinayaka Chathurthi, I made white channa sundal. Here is the recipe.


Ingredients:
  • White channa – ½ cup
  • Grated coconut – 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste

For seasoning:
  • Mustard – 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida – 1 tsp
  • Dry chillies – 2 Nos.
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Oil – 1 tsp

Method:

Wash and soak channa dhal overnight (atleast for six hours), if you are going to prepare in the morning. Pressure cook channa for about 4 whistles until soft. In a kadai, pour oil, season with the items given for seasoning, add the drained channa and required salt. Cook for 2 minutes, add coconut, mix well. Kondaikkadalai sundal is ready.
