Mochai Sundal Recipe / Mochai Payaru Sundal Recipe

Mochai Sundal Recipe

I made this mochai sundal today, its the usual sundal recipe but as a variation replaced coconut with carrots, it was crunchy and tasty.I just wanted variation and thats the only reason I added carrots otherwise I don't mind adding coconut :)

I loved this sundal, the spice level was well balanced with carrots.delicious and healthy snack ready in few minutes.I had this along with my breakfast, it was so filling.
