A sundal can be described as an Indian salad made of legumes, prepared as a neiveidhyam (offering) during Indian festivals. Mainly they are made during the Navrathri festival. Sundals are very healthy and low in fat, so you can serve them as snacks or with tea/coffee. We make this chickpeas sundal during Vinakaya Chaturthi along with different modakams and kozhukattais. Let's see how to make this simple sundal.
Notes and Tips
- Adding salt while cooking chickpeas will make it absorb better.
- You can add some lemon juice at the end to give tangy flavor.
