Avarekalu Usli Recipe – Avarekalu Sundal Recipe

Avarekalu usli recipe
Avarekalu usli or avarekalu sundal is a Karnataka special avarekalu recipe ( Hyacinth beans / field beans in Engligh, Mochai In Tamil, Lilva papdi in Hindi) that is served as an evening snack along with tea. Some people prefer to have this as a side dish for akki roti / ubbu roti, rice and chapathi. My school moms friends told its preparation procedure is similar to avarekalu palya. Its a very simple and healthy recipe with less ingredients and no grinding job. Just temper the cooked avarekalu with mustard, chilli, onion, garlic and garnish with lots of coconut. Based on the inputs from my friends, I tried it for the first time by watching an YouTube video by Mallamma ajji. This recipe is of Gubbi, Tumkur style. I made slight changes in the original recipe and tried it. Actually I found two versions of avarekalu usli recipe. One is a simple way which I have shown below and the other one is with ground coconut masala. As I tried for my lunch to serve as sundal, I chose this easy version. If you have cooked averakalu ready in hand, you can prepare this usli under 5 minutes. You can also make it directly in a pressure cooker using raw field beans. You can make it semi solid or dry in consistency by adjusting the water quantity. Friends try this easy, Tumkur style avarekalu usili recipe. You will love it. Its so easy and quick to make. We enjoyed it as a snack. Ok, lets see how to make Karnataka special avarekalu usli / avarekalu sundal recipe with step by step pictures.

Kondakadalai Sundal Recipe–Black Channa Sundal–South Indian Chana Sundal

Black chana sundal

In Tamilnadu, people make Sakkarai pongal and kondakadalai sundal for Varalakshmi pooja, Ganesh Chaturthi, Tamil new year and Navarathri festival. We make this sundal with white chana or brown chana. My MIL usually says it is auspicious to make black chana sundal( i.e Kala chana in Hindi, Black chickpeas sundal in English, Karuppu Konda kadalai sundal in Tamil) during festival days. Yesterday I prepared Sakkarai pongal and brown chana sundal for Varalakshmi vratham prasadam. Usually I make sundal in a simple way by grinding coconut, chilli and cumin seeds. I don’t ad any masala powder or fennel seeds if making for God. Some people also make this sundal by adding sundal podi. I will try post that version later during Navratri. Today lets see an easy method of making brown kondakadalai sundal recipe with step by step pictures.

Pattani Sundal Recipe – Green Peas Sundal – Sundal Varieties

I had to post this Green Peas Sundal Recipe (Pattani sundal in Tamil) last week during Navaratri. But I couldn’t do it due to some personal work. I am yet to start Diwali recipes. So today I am posting this recipe from my draft. From tomorrow, you can expect some yummy Diwali sweets and snacks from here : )). Pattani sundal is one of the easy and yummy sundal varieties we make during Navaratri for neivedyam. Last week I prepared this sundal recipe for Golu. I used dried green peas, soaked it overnight and prepared this sundal. If you have frozen or fresh green peas (pachai pattani) in hand, your job becomes easier. Cooking green peas perfectly is a bit tricky. Most of us face the problem of peas becoming mushy after pressure cooking. 

Green peas sundal

Proper soaking and addition of salt while pressure cooking helps to retain its shape and cooks soft as well. Recently my neighbor shared this sundal by adding masala. It was tasting great and truly flavorful. But I made it in the usual way as we need to avoid onion & garlic for neivedyam. Soon I will share my neighbor’s masala sundal recipe. For variations, you can make this sundal with white peas or yellow peas as well. Today lets see how to make green peas sundal recipe with step by step pictures.
