Thattapayaru Sundal Recipe
Thattapayaru Sundal is a very flavourful sundal, you can even make sweet sundal with thattapayaru.As its first time, I tried a simple spice mix for this sundal and it turned out so flavourful and good.I loved it as such and had the leftover with lunch for sambar rice and it was a great combo.

Thattapayaru is also cowpeas,you can check more about the legume here.

Hope you are a having a great Navarathri week!!

My Notes:

  • Adjust spice level according to your taste buds.
  • Roasting and cooking the legume lends great flavour to the sundal.
  • Do not overcook the legume and make it mushy, it should be cooked soft at the same time not mushy.
