Kara sundal -

The go to and no fail sundal recipe. Most common way the sundal is prepared. It almost takes me back to navratri days. Just add red chilli and saute. Then add cooked channa and shredded coconut.

Lemon Sundal -

To the tadka, add cooked chickpea, shredded coconut, lemon juice and ginger. Wonderful flavor twist, chickpeas and lemon bond amazingly well. Ginger gives the salad a great twist. The coconut flavour takes it to a whole new level

Masala Sundal -

To the tadka, chickpeas, coconut, add kothamalli vara podi. You know how much I insist on having kothamalli vara podi in pantry. If you still haven't made, I urge you to get on that. It awesome to use in recipes like this in minutes. 


Enjoy and Happy cooking
