you can make sundal with green peas, red kidney beans, kala chana, chana dal, black eyed peas, sweet corn, moong beans, peanuts and so on.

sundal recipes are prepared during vinayaka chaturthi or janmashtami puja or navratri fasting in south india.

they are very easy to prepare and make for a healthy brunch or snack. since they are quick to prepare, they can also be served as a side dish.

i usually soak the beans, overnight and then pressure cook them. once they are cooked soft, its just easy to temper them and add some fresh coconut. this is also a no onion no garlic recipe.

this chickpea sundal is so good with the aroma & flavor of mustard, black gram, curry leaves and the freshness of the coconut in the softly cooked chickpeas….. that it can be just had on its own without any accompaniments.
