Kala Chana Masala Sundal Recipe / Black Chana Sundal Recipe / Kondakadalai Sundal Recipe

When it comes to sundal, you can make them pretty much with any beans. But my all time favorite is with chana..I already have a white chana masala sundal & white chana pepper sundal. This is a version made with black chana and it is so healthy too..I have another version which is made by giving this a light tempering alone, will share it soon..Make sure you check my other navarathri recipes too..

Hope you will like it and give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 40 to 45 mins
Serves : 4


Black Chana / Konda Kadalai - 2 cup dried
Salt - to taste
Fresh Coconut - 1/2 cup grated 

For Sundal Podi:
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Chana Dal / Kadalai Paruppu - 1 tblspn
Dry Red Chilli - 2
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Whole Pepper - 1 tsp

For Tempering:
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu Paruppu - 1 tsp
