MOCHAI SUNDAL FOR NAVARATRI| MOCHAI SUNDAL RECIPE

Mochai sundal is one among the sundal which my amma makes during navaratri and this mochai she rarely cooks and to be more precise she cooks only during navaratri for sundal only. I use this for making Kara kuzhambhu and sometimes in Vathakuzhambhu too. I just made this mochai sundal with the similar spice mix which have used for KALYANA RASAM, omitting the pepper and jeera. A very Happy navaratri to all of you.
