sundal varieties for navratri

In South India, Sundal is the most important and must prepare prasadam recipes during Navaratri. 9 varieties of sundal is prepared during this nine days (Nava means 9 , ratri is night) festival in Tamil nadu. Apart from tradition, there are some scientific reasons to consume legumes / navadhaniyam during Navratri days. Though we can make varieties of sweets and snacks, sundal recipes are mainly prepared and distributed as prasad to friends and relatives who visit our house Golu. The most common sundal varieties are chana /chickpeas/  kondakadalai sundal using white and brown ones, peas/ pattani sundal, green gram dal / pachai payaru sundal, Cowpeas / karamani sundal, Field beans/ mochai sundal, Kidney beans / rajma sundal, moong dal/ paasi paruppu sundal, and 9 mixed legumes / navadhaniyam sundal.  The basic preparation of sundal recipes is very simple. For this, legumes are soaked overnight, pressure cooked, tempered with spices and finally garnished with grated coconut. Some sundal recipes like chana dal sundal, sweet corn, green gram, cowpeas, moong dal sundal recipes can be prepared instantly without soaking. But all sundal recipes should be prepared without onion and garlic as we are offering to God. But nowadays people make variations by adding garam masala, sundal powder etc. So far I have shared more than 15 different types of sundal recipes in my blog. Lets see all under one page in this post.
