Chana sundal

Channa sundal recipe, Navaratri Sundal recipe, with fresh sundal podi. Recipe of sundal with full video and step by step instructions.

We make channa sundal | Chickpeas sundal for Navaratri, Ganesh chaturthi and Varalakshmi nombu. Even sometimes when we run out of veggies at home, we can make this as an accompaniment for rasam rice or sambar rice. We usually temper mustard seeds and red chili and add the cooked chickpeas. This way of making sundal with fresh spice powder, I learned from my mother-in-law. I like this one as it is loaded with nice flavors of fresh ground masala.

The same spice powder we can use for making brinjal podi curry and also we can use this powder for rasam and arachuvitta sambar.

We can make this spice powder in bulk during navaratri season and use it up for all varieties of sundal. But people who are very orthodox, will not use the same podi for all days. So you do as per your convenience.

Check out our full collection of Navaratri Sundal and sweets recipes.

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!
