Pacha Payaru Sundal ( Sweet Variety ) / Pacha Payaru Vella Sundal / Green Gram Sweet Sundal - Navaratri Recipes

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.

Preparation Time : 8 hours

Mustard seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu - 1 tsp
Dry Red Chilli - 2 cut into small pieces

Soak green gram in lots of water overnight or upto 8 hours. Drain them and add it to a sauce pan. Cover it with water, simmer the pan and cook for 15 to 20 mins till it is completely cooked. Drain them and set aside.

Make jaggery syrup. Take jaggery and add a splash of water. Boil it till the jaggery is melted. Strain and set aside.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add in the seasoning ingredients and saute for a min.
