Channa Sundal - Kondakadalai Sundal Recipe | Vinayagar Chaturthi Recipes

Channa Sundal Recipe
Chana sundal is a savoury snack traditional made for vinayagar chathurthi.....We usually make sweet modakam(pooranam kozhukattai), savoury kozhukattai, channa sundal and ellu urundai now. The internet at home has gone down for the past 2 days and am feeling sick, just came to a near by browsing center to post this :) Hopefully my net should be back atleast for the next post....keeping fingers crossed.

When I saw these thonais(the cup holding the sundal) at Nilgiris the first thing that striked me was to make channa sundal and click with it. Sometimes yes the props hold more attention than the main dish to me :) I am sure most food bloggers will agree with me.
Channa Sundal

My Notes:

  • You can even boil the channa instead of pressure cooking, but I prefer the pressure cooking way.
  • While pressure cooking channa adding salt takes time to cook so I always add it while tempering.
  • You can use the same method for cooking green gram,mocha kottai or even channa dhal which makes a variety for navaratri sundal recipes.
