Day 3&4#: Pachapayaru Vella Sundal / Green gram Sweet sundal | Navarathiri Recipes

For day 3&4 (yes both fall on the same day) of Navarathiri, I made pachapayaru sundal for padayal. Since it has been savory sundal varieties for the past two days, I wanted to make something sweet today for neivedhiyam (read for us) and hence settled down for pachapayaru vella sundal. Amma used to make this for us when we were kids but she used to mash everything up and make balls out of the mixture. That way she found it easy to feed us and we found it easy to gobble them up. This time I made it dry and I loved this version too.

~*What U Need*~
Green gram / Pachapayaru – 1/2 cup
Salt – A pinch
Jaggery – 1/4 cup
Water – 2-3 tbsp
Grated coconut – 3 tbsp
Cardamom powder – a pinch(optional)

How I Made it:
Soak the green gram in water for 4 hours. Drain and pressure cook with water for 2 whistles. Drain the green gram. Take the powdered jaggery in a pan, cover with little water and make a syrup. After the jaggery has melted, strain it to remove the impurities. Heat again till it becomes frothy and thick. Remove from flame and add the cardamom powder. I skipped it.

Add the cooked dal and mix well with a fork to avoid turning mushy. Add the grated coconut and mix well. Cool completely.

Serve as snack.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
