I wanted to make some Sundal recipe for Ganesh Chaturthi special. I have already made a sweet, coconut ladoo and posted it. I have explained about ganesh chaturthi on that :)If someone wants to read,:) you can ;). The most common sundal recipes for festival are chenna sundal. But they do this also for festivals. 🙂 This is a basic sundal version that we make for navarathri. Navrathri is near by too.
If you are using fresh gresh peas, soak them overnight. You can use it next day. I used the frozen peas 😉 so it was even easier. You can use this recipe to make any variety of sundal recipes. Just replace with those lentils/beans.
- Fresh Frozen peas - ½ cup
- Salt - To taste
To blend to a coarse paste:
- Grated coconut - 2tbsp
- Green chillies -2 small
- Coriander - 1 tbsp
- Ginger- small piece. Very small.
- Jeera - ½ tsp
- Oil - 2tsp
- Mustard seeds - 2tsp
- Curry leaves - 6
- Red chilli - 1
- Hing - a pinch
- If you are using fresh dried variety of peas, then soak them overnight or atleast for 4 hrs. Pour enough water,salt and pressure cook for 3 whistles.The skin might come out, just discard them.
- I am using frozen green peas, so i just wash them. Set aside.
- Transfer the ingredients listed under "to blend to a coarse paste" into a blender and blend them to a coarse paste. set aside.
- Heat a pan with the oil, add the list under "temper" in that pan.
- Add the green peas and salt, toss them for two minutes. Add the blended mixture on top of it. Saute them for two - three minutes until the raw smell of green chillies leaves. Switch off.
