Navarathri Sundal Overload

Hope everyone had a wonderful Navarathri. I could see so many wonderful Sundal recipes in blogosphere!

I wanted to do a series of all the sundal recipes but with so many other things happening, could not do it this time. Maybe next year. But, I did take pictures of all the Sundals prepared at home everyday. I think we made it 8 of the 9 days - one day we just made some other sweet and that was the naivediyam.

So, here's a peek at what went on at out place on the days of Navarathri.

The basic recipe for any Sundal is as follows.

Cook the grain till soft and not mushy. If the grain is too hard like Kabuli channa, soak for a few hours before they are cooked. Drain all the water from the grain and set aside.

In a pan, do a tadka of these things -

1 tsp mustard seeds,
1 tsp Urad daal seeds
3-4 green chillies finely chopped
1 inch piece Ginger finely chopped
Curry leaves - about 6-7
Raw mango - cut into small pieces - about 1/2 cup
Grated or chopped fresh coconut - about 1/2 cup.

When doing the tadka, add the mango and coconut at the end. Switch off the flame as soon as you add it, Then, add the boiled sundal grain and mix well. Add salt to taste if needed.

Here are my Sundal Pics -
