Day 6#: Kaaramani Inippu Sundal / Sweet Cow Gram Sundal | Navarathiri Recipes

For day 6 of Navarathiri I made this kaaramani inippu sundal for neivedhiyam. Making different types of sundal for all the nine days of Navarathiri is so interesting and I am planning to continue this habit. That way I would have the satisfaction that I am including one dhal or pulse in our everyday diet.
Cow gram a.k.a black eyed peas a.k.a kaaramani has high fibre content and helps to alleviate constipation and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. These simple bean variety is a low-fat and low-calorie food. They are also protein and iron-rich. With so much benefits, there is nothing wrong in including this in your daily-diet. A handful of cow gram boiled with some salt can make wonders to your health.

~*What U Need*~
Cow gram / Kaaramani – 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 cow gram in water overnight. Drain and pressure cook with water for 2 whistles. Drain and set aside. 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 kaaramani and mix gently to avoid turning mushy. Add the grated coconut and mix well. Cool completely.

Serve as snack.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
