Spicy karam karamani sundal-navaratri recipe

      Thats how this chundal was referred to by my son when he tasted this one. I hope all of you are enjoying the navaratri now.I do plan to make different chundals for the next nine days. I made with karamani or black eyed beans yesterday which happens to be hubby’s favourite. I made it a tad spicier as the beans are really bland and has to be flavoured up with spices to make it tasty. It was quite delicious and enjoyed by all with some delicious semiya payasam.

       For different navaratri prasadams and chundals refer this post. I shall be posting the chundal recipes which I have not posted already and also updating some old pictures.

       Also refer whole masoor dal chundal recipe here.
