Pachai payaru sundal recipe with easy steps and simple ingredients. Navaratri sundal recipe with step by step pictures.
I tried and posted pachai payaru sweet sundal long time back. Have made savoury sundal a few times. Even with sprouted pachai payaru I have made sundal. Have not clicked it before. This year as Navaratri is just few days away, thought of sharing this simple sundal recipe. You can follow this same for green gram sprouts too. Just steam it for short time as sprouts gets cooked easily.
If you want you can sprinkle a dash of lemon juice for extra zing in the recipe. Green mung takes less time to get soaked and cooked. So soaking just for 2-3 hours is enough. Also 2 whistles is enough for cooking the green moong.
