Channa dhal Sundal

Serves 2


Channa dhal (kadalai paruppu) – 1 cup

Mustard seeds – 1 tbsp

Urid dhal – 1 tbsp

Jeera (cumin seeds) – 1 tbsp

Red dry chillies – 4

Oil – 2 tbsp

Salt – to taste

Coriander – for garnishing

Preparation of Sundal:

  1. Cook the channa dhal in a pressure cooker (take out after 2 whistles) or cooking vessel for 15 mins till it becomes soft.Make sure it is not overcooked. Drain the water and keep it aside…
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.
  3. After it crackles, add urid dhal, jeera, red dry chillies and fry lightly.
  4. Now add the cooked channa dhal, salt and mix well for 2-3 mins.
  5. Remove from flame and add coriander.

Good to have as snacks or even as a side dish to rice.

Additional info:

You can add grated coconut, if u like. I’ve not used it in this.

If the channa dhal is overcooked, it’ll get mashed while mixing. But that will also taste good.
