Green Gram Sundal | Pacha Payaru Sundal | Sundal Recipe

Pacha Payaru  Sundal is one of the easiest, healthiest and tastiest snack made from green gram dal.Usually i make this for evening tea or as accompaniment for puttu, but you can prepare this sundal as your Navarathri prasadam too. 

In this year 2016, Navarathri will start on 1st oct and will continue for next 9 days. Though we don't keep kolu in our home, i like this time of  the year, it's so festive on evening times. Every temple near our home at Tirunelveli, keep a lot of bommai(doll) in golu and it's so exciting to go and watch in each temple.

It's a practice to prepare atleast one prasadam every day and offer to god. Sundal is the main prasadam for this festival,so thought of sharing various sundal recipes in coming days.Stay tuned.
