CHANNA SUNDAL

VELLAI KONDAKADALAI SUNDAL.

Channa sundal , though we make usually during Navaratri or Ganesha Chaturthi , i make this whenever i am running out veggies or whenever i soak for Channa Masala or Channa pulao I soak a handful extra to make this sundal. This way of making sundal I learnt from my mother in-law and i like this one as it is loaded with nice flavors of fresh ground masala.

Nice version of sundal with podi. But I prefer sundal with the smaller variety of chickpea. Kabuli channa seems to be getting bigger and bigger in size these days!
