Navratri Festival is around the corner and I am happy to share a delicious, flavoursome and highly nutritious Sundal recipe. Sundal is ubiquitous in South India and are popular during Navratri. People keeping Kolu make sundal as neivedyam and to distribute to guests. Sundals can be made with any legumes like white or brown chickpeas, peanuts, moongdal, chana dal, rajma, etc. Multigrain Sundal is a very healthy and easy to prepare recipe. It is made with soaked multigrains, coconut shreds, ginger , green chilly and tempered with spices. It works great as snack, breakfast, light meal too.
