rangoli sundal copy

Rangoli sundal ( Mixed sundal recipe) , Is this title sounds attractive and unique? ;) . I tried this recipe from a magazine just by seeing this title . As the name suggests it came out so colorful. Some people also call it as Navaratna sundal. Raksha became very happy to see this multi colored sundal and asked me to serve her a bowl. It was not only colorful but also very tasty.In this sundal , I have added freshly ground spices and little lemon juice which made the sundal spicy , tangy and flavorful.As I wanted to make this sundal instantly, I chose legmes like white lobia , brown chana, sweet corn and green peas which needs no soaking. I soaked peanuts in hot water for an hour and I roasted chana, lobia and pressure cooked all the grains together for 3-4 whistles in low flame.Everything was cooked perfectly.Do try this sundal recipe for this Navaratri and njoy !!

Enjoy !
  • U can add any number of pulses/grains to make it more colorful.U can replace brown channa by rajma..As i din’t have rajma in hand , i din’t use it.
  • If u use white channa and rajma, u have to soak it for 8 hours.So i dint use both.
  • I have used green peas.So i din’t soak in advance. If u use dried peas,soak it overnight  or for 6 hours in hot water..
  • U can try this recipe without adding the masala powder.It also tastes good.U can try this way for kids.
