This is one recipe which we make quite often. But not everytime we add jaggery into this. We make it without any sweetness and add some sugar while eating. I will post the savoury version soon. For now i am giving you the traditional way of making this sweet sundal.
Check out the beach sundal which i posted yesterday.
