Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal - Marina Beach Special at home..!

Print Friendly and PDF
Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal :
As  I am  basically, a  born and brought up Chennaian,  am a proud lover of second longest beach in the world, Marina...!!!  It is also the favorite meeting point for young lovers. 
Whenever, we find free time, we won't miss our chance to enjoy the nature of roaring beach and the lipsmacking beach sundal...!   Lots of good memories and times spent here..!
We can see grown up kids selling Thenga  Manga  Pattani  Sundal  all  over.  Tasting the hot and tangy sundals, wrapped in newspaper cones, with watching the sea waves is absolutely unforgettable..! 
Love you Marina.. ;)
