Ganesh chaturthi / Vinayagar chaturthi is only 2 days away and here is the channa sundal recipe we make for the festival. You can make the same with black channa too. I love both channa white and the brown/black. I often make channa masala or pindi channa for Aj. Sundal I make only very rarely. But I love it. This year we are not celebrating the festival as paati passed away, so made it last week and clicked too. Very simple recipe, but flavourful one. Channa or konadakadalai is how we call. But when I was studying in Trichy, many of my friends call kondakadalai as Sundal as such. It was funny for me for a while but then when I heard it from others too, then realized some people also call kondakadalai as sundal! .
Delicious sundal is ready… Its very healthy guilt free snack!
I am sending this sundal to Priti of Indian Khanna’s Festive food event.
