Thenga manga pattani sundal
I wanted to try this thengai mangai pattani sundal(Coconut,Raw mango,peas) during last year Navaratri.But I couldn’t do it.So this year I was very much stubborn & determined to start my Navratri Sundal recipes posts only with this most popular Chennai Marina Beach style sundal recipe.Luckily I found a raw mango in the market yesterday and bought it even though it was too costlyTongue.Generally when we think about Chennai beach, apart from the wonderful sea breeze,snacks like Kara pori,Green peas masala chaat, fire roasted corn, sweet cotton candy ( Panchumittai) and thenga manga pattani sundal flashes in our mind.But frankly speaking,I have never tasted any one of them in the beachSad.I visit Chennai very rarely and that too to attend weddings and other family functions.So when I go there,I directly go to our relatives house.As soon as the function gets over,we would be off to Bangalore immediatelySigh.This year too we have planned for a Chennai trip in a month or two.This time I have demanded few things to Sendhil like Shopping in T Nagar,Food at Saravana Bhavan especially Vada curry & Kaima idli and most importantly,a visit to Marina beach.I think Sendhil would keep up his promise and take me to all these placesWinking.After I taste the real sundal in the beach,I will update this post to match its original taste.Today I made this sundal following the recipe from Radhika’s blog.It came out very well and tasty.With the flavor & tanginess of raw mango,it tasted awesome !! Friends,do try this sundal for Navratri neivedyam and share your feedback.If you don’t have raw mango in hand,add more lemon juice and use grated carrots.After doing the pooja,you can also add finely chopped onions & relish this sundal.Lets see how to make this yummy Beach style Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal .
