Sundal is a traditional healthy snack offered and severed as prasadam during golu time mainly. Though we all make it, it’s often related to golu. This year since I am away on a vacation, could not keep golu. But made this one long time back and had it in my drafts. I have used macaroni pasta, you can use any of your favorite, but highly recommend the small varieties as it should blend with sundal.
For sundal podi recipe, refer this post or this post
