With Navarathri, How can I do away without a post on sundal? Sundal can best be described as a evening snack cooked with all kid of lentils, pulses, nuts or sprouts.Verkadalai sundal is one such snack made out of groundnuts/ peanuts. Navarathri is no fun if you dont hop over from house to house eating sundal. The thrill of eagerly waiting for that little pack of snack, sometimes given in a newspaper or in a leaf cup, munching it on the way to home- been there, done all.I had the same thrill when I made this sundal.
