You can think, this is a easy sundal recipe. But i am telling you, i have got this messed up so many times. A second you leave this, it gets over cooked and completely mushy. And also you cannot pressure cook this, you have to cook this directly in a sauce pan by draining method. And keep standing near the pot and check it every second. It just takes less than 5 mins to cook it, and you have to soak this before hand.
