Sago Sundal with video

Javarisi sundal | sago sundal is a new variety of sundal with javarisi and moong dal as main ingredients. I usually make moong dal sundal at home but this one with javarisi is quite new to me. I saw this in subbus kitchen few years back. When i was talking about Navaratri recipes my friend Shriprada passed on this recipe to me. She is a good cook and also cooks all traditional tamil brahmin recipes very well. Also her Golu is always a classic one and mostly theme based too. It tasted quite well and we had it for evening snack. You can make this for Navaratri too for neivedhyam. Check out my other Navaratri sundal and sweets recipes too. I have given a similar recipe with poha in my Kutties kitchen cook book and also in a thozi supplement book 3 years ago.
