Pacha payar sundal

Here goes the recipe for one of the favourite evening snack made from green gram.

Pacha payar (green gram) – 100 grams
Grated coconut – 20 grams
Green chillies – 2 nos
Oil – 5 grams
Mustard – 5 grams
Channa dal – 2 grams
Curry leaves – few
Turmeric powder and salt – to taste

  • Soak the pacha payar for 8-10 hours or overnight.
  • Pressure cook the pacha payar with salt and turmeric powder for one whistle and simmer for about 2 minutes.
  • The pacha payar need not be very mushy.
  • In a kadai, pour oil and add the mustard.
  • Once mustard splutters, add the channa dal, curry leaves and slit green chillies.
  • Fry for about a minute. Add the grated coconut and fry for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the cooked pacha payar. Mix well and keep for about a minute.

Hot sundal is ready!!
This would also be a great side dish for curd rice or Kanji...
