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

Sundal means it is using chana. We make it in different ways, but this is the basic. I love adding pepper when i make sundal using white chana. I have already shared a white chana masala sundal and kala chana masala sundal. Check out my other navrathri recipes..

So give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..

Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu Paruppu -  1 tsp
Dry Red Chillies - 2 chopped into small pieces
