Sundal is a must during Navratri. It is one of those common recipes during this season which comes in little potlams or boxes. Every Golu mami will have a sundal potlam for the day. I find quite a number of reasons why this is popular during the navrathri season
- One nothing beats the ease of packing them.
- Two it does make all that healthy eating concept all the more strong after all many beans.
- Three,innumerable bean varieties, many many small changes in proportions and each one creates a unique taste. Therefore I decided to put together the Navarathna sundal this season.
Earlier on this blog two more sundals were posted. Here is what Rajma sundal and soybean sundal looks like.
To this recipe- navarathna sundal
There are already the recipes of rajma sundal and soy bean sundal on the blog here. Both distinctly different in preperation to this navarathna sundal. In fact, the use of sundal podi makes it so easy for me that I use sundals as a recipe for bean salad in my lunchbox.
Get your Sundal podi recipe here as it is one of the best quick fixes to any flavour deficient dish.
It makes the beans filling and healthy and I don’t feel so bloated. The sundal podi is such a blessing to be used on quick stir-fries of all sorts of vegetables as well.
This recipe for navarathna sundal is slightly varied in the flavour profile. The mix of beans used are
- Black eye beans
- Black Chickpea
- White chickpeas
- Green gram
- Black urad
- You can also use- Mochai kottai or Soybeans
For the seasoning, along with the basic south Indian tempering and sundal podi, there is ginger, fresh coriander leaves and loads of lime. Now that is an explosion of flavour you don’t want to miss. Try out this navarathna sundal recipe during this time of Navrathri.
Sadly, I am not celebrating and keeping a Bommai golu this year as someone close to us passed away and we are skipping this as a mark of respect, but surely you will see this in my lunch box.
See you next week with more yummies. Keep in touch with us and tag us when you create your sundals for this season.
