28 GREEN PEAS SUNDAL AND AN AWARD

Green Peas Sundal / Pattaani sundal

I usually try to make this peas sundal with dry peas. They taste more good. You can serve this along with tea/coffee as a snack. It does not take long to prepare this dish, can also have as a dry side dish with rice and curry.


Dry peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1 small chopped fine
Red chillies - 2 or 3 broken into half
Curry leaves - few
Coconut grated - 2 tbsp
Ginger - a small piece ( chopped fine or grated) - optional use
Mustard seeds, urad dhal and cumin seeds - all combined 3/4 tbsp
Salt as needed
Hing - a pinch
Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp

Soak green peas atleast for 4 hours or overnight. Later change water and add water just enough of immersing and pressure cook for 2 whistle till soft but not mushy. Remove and drain water. Keep aside.


Heat oil in a frying pan and add mustard seeds, urad dhal,hing and cumin seeds . Wait till they splutter out and add broken red chillies and chopped onions. Fry well , also add chopped ginger and fry till onions turns nice brown. Next add the cooked peas along with salt. Also and add grated coconut and mix well.
