My Notes:

  • If you are soaking peas overnight then 2 whistles is just enough to cook it soft. But if you are soaking only for 4 hrs then give 3-4 whistles.You can add salt while pressure cooking itself and adjust while mixing with other tempering and coconut mixture.
  • You can even add a small piece of ginger while grinding.
  • Adjust green chillies according to the spicelevel you prefer.
  • You can even use the yellow variety of fried peas for making this sundal recipe.
