Kadalai Paruppu Sundal - Chana Dal Sundal Recipe | Navaratri Recipes

Chana Dal Sundal Recipe
Chana Dal Sundal(Kadalai Paruppu Sundal) is one easy and quick sundal recipe to make for navaratri.I havent been to kollus I remember only once seeing it in person in my friends place. Otherwise to me, kollus are always visualised only in movies :) On vinayagar chathurthi when we went to temple, chakarai pongal was served in these thonnais and I picked these thonnais from there :)

Kadalai Paruppu Sundal

Transfer to serving dish and serve hot!

My Notes:

  • Pressure cooking will be ok too but take care not to make channa dal mushy.
  • Adding ginger always helps to avoid gastric problems with most lentils esp with chana dal.
  • You can replace red chillies with green chillies also.
