rajma-sundal

I rarely cook rajma, but really like it. I actually forget this too use. I loved both quesadillas as well as rajma masala. So wanted to try sundal with it. I have had this sundal when I was very young in a neighbour’s house. Also its always fun to eat rajam one by one and it tastes so unique from the other legumes too. So why not try it for this Navratri 2013 as a sundal? This is one way of making sundal by grinding the coconut ginger and green chilli. This can be followed for all the sundals like peanut sundal, Channa sundal and channa dal sundal as well. Tastes and smells great. Vj enjoyed this very much that he finished in no time. So I should make this often here after.
