karuppu ulundu sundal

I tried this sundal very recently, it was very delicious. It is very healthy, easy to make too. Since I love the flavour of asafoetida, green chilli and coconut combination in ulundu pooranam for kozhukattai, I added the same ingredients. Not only for Navaratri, this south Indian sundal can be a healthy snack too that you can make for your family.

  4. never tried sundal with karuppu ulundu... looks delicious

  5. Usually the skin of ulundhu is discarded telling that it will cause stomach ache... This is first time I'm seeing it is being used.

  6. No not at all. Infact, ulundu is used with skin in many other recipes too, like thogayal, idli podi, it adds more flavor too. Dal makhani also uses urad dal with skin. Its really healthy. I am also hearing for the first time that it will cause stomach ache.

  7. i enjoy trying your recepies!! Love your"" notes"after every recepie. They give loads of information bços of which i turn out better cooking !! keep it up!
