Whole masoor dal chundal recipe- Navaratri recipes
Navaratri is around the corner and am sure you all have started the preperations on the menu, golu decoration ,dandia etc. I have also compiled a post on navaratri recipes which you can find ithere
Coming to today's post, chundal is made with lentils especially during navaratri in Tamilnadu.
I often use whole masoor dal in my cooking. It is very healthy and is a rich source of iron. I made a chundal with it recently and decided to blog it now as people make it a point to make various chundal on each day for nine days of navaratri. I hope you do try it this time.
- Soak the masoor dal in water for about 2 hours. Cook in a pressure cooker till its soft , but should not turn mushy. Drain out the water completely.
- Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, udid dal, channa dal,dried red chillies,asafoetida and curry leaves in this order.
- When it crackles, add the cooked masoor dal along with some salt and mix well.
- Add the grated coconut. Mix and saute for 4-5 minutes.Remove from flame.
You can serve this as a snack or salad, or as a sidedish for chapatis or some rice.
