Sundal is a healthy and nutritious snack preparation, generally made out of boiled white chickpeas (kabuli chana) or boiled peanuts. They are very popular in South India, especially Tamilnadu.
They are served in temples and often can be found being sold in parks and beaches. So I decided to prepare my version of the same with some whole black gram sprouts. The end result was simply delicious and worth a try.
- 1 cup whole urad dal sprouts (black gram)
- 1 tbsp. oil
- 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
- 1-2 green chilies, chopped
- 1 tsp. split urad dal (black gram)
- 1 sprig curry leaves
- salt to taste
- 2-3 tbsp. grated fresh coconut
- 1 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
Heat oil in a pan and temper with the mustard seeds. after it stops spluttering, add the green chilies, urad dal and curry leaves.
Saute for a few seconds or till the dal changes colour. Add the sprouts and salt. Saute on high flame for a minute.
Switch off the flame and add the coconut. Give it a stir and serve, garnished with coriander leaves.
