Sundal is a very healthy, filling and protein packed dish. You can give sundal as a snack for children after they return from school. Different varieties of sundals are prepared during Navratri festival. Today let us learn how to prepare karamani kara sundal using our easy sundal recipe.

Karamani (Kara) Sundal- How to make Karamani Sundal

Many of you might be bored with the regular sundal recipe.Try this for a change, which I have prepared using vegetable curry podi.

Ingredients needed

Karamani /Cow peas -1 cup

Podi/Spice powder

Bengal gram /kadalai paruppu -1 tbsp
Urad dal -1 tbsp
Red chilli -3-4

For the seasoning

Mustard - 1 tsp
Urad dal -3/4 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Red Chilli
Curry leaves -few


Soak black eyed peas overnight or for 6 hours. Wash and pressure cook till soft, adding salt and just needed water. Drain excess water.

Heat 1/2 tsp of oil and fry bengal gram, urad dal and red chilli till dal changes color. Dry grind it or powder it and keep it aside.

Method (just 2 steps)

1. Heat a tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add hing, urad dal, red chilli and curry leaves.

2. Then add the cooked karamani , grounded powder and cook for a few seconds.

Karamani sundal is ready to be served.

You can also prepare this sundal in the same way as I have prepared peanut sundal(verkadalai sundal) and channa sundal (chick pea/kondai kadalai sundal).
