Print Friendly and PDF

 Pasiparuppu Sundal:

" Navrathri "   or  " Dassara  Festival "  is round the corner.  It is a colourful festival, which is celebrated continuously for nine days. A variety of special dishes are made and served as Neivedyam for pooja during this festival. 

Amongst the  Navratri  special  recipesSundal  makes a prime recipe. Varieties of sundal are prepared and served during this festival. 

Today, I prepared  Moongdal  Sundal,  which is a healthy & easy to prepare snack..:)

Unlike other varieties of protein ( lentils) , moong dal gets cooked very easily, so no need to soak for long hours. 

And it makes an excellent snack for kids as well as mid day snack for those who are on diet. It is a good source of high levels of protein and contain only very less fat calories.

Try this very delicious &.yummy  moong  dal  sundal  recipe,  that tickles our taste buds and leave us craving for more..:)
