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.
- Soak the beans in water for 1 hour. Usually it turns soft very soon. Then cook in a pressure cooker till soft, but not mushy. You can even boil them in water till soft. Drain the water completely.
- Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, udid dal, asafoetida and dried red chillies. When it crackles, add curry leaves and ginger julienne.
- Now add the cooked beans along with salt and curry powder and mix well.Saute for 2-3 minutes.
- Next add the grated coconut. Mix well together and cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.Switch off the flame.
