Vella Sundal |Sweet Sundal made using Pachai payaru | Green gram | Pasi payaru | Green moong dal with step by step pictures, and tips to cook the green moong dal perfect for sundal. Sundal is made for Navaratri neivedyam and i have already posted many Sundal varieties in Jeyashris kitchen. When was making a list of what to post for Navaratri, i realised i haven't posted Sundal using pachai payaru. And many times i have tasted this sundal in friend's house, most of the time it will be mushy. Green gram tends to get mushy so quickly but if you cook it properly it will retain it's shape. I have given the tip to cook it perfectly in this post. Check out my collection of Navaratri Sweets and Sundal recipes.
