(Amma Cooks) White Channa Sundal | Kondakadalai Sundal | Vinayagar Chathurthi Recipes

When I moved to the U.S. one thing that I missed other than family, relatives and native food, was my amma's food. I miss her biryani, her nei choru, her nilgris chops and everything cooked by her. I miss her a lot. Its not that I don't like this place, I do like it, its neat, its lavish and moreover it completes my dream. But end of the day when you sit back, you don't have anyone around to have some coffee talk. A steaming hot cup of coffee, some murukku, 7.30 serial in Sun TV with your family is what I am talking about. I deeply miss it.

I was so disappointed on thinking that I would have to stop the Amma Cooks series which has been going on for a while in my blog. But thanks to my amma, I asked her to send me the clicks of the dishes that she makes so that I can get them published here and she wholeheartedly obliged. So you are gonna see some easy and yummy recipes from her. There is not gonna be any pictures with greatly styled food(...okay mine are not great too), just a single image that was taken using a P&S, but its "hers"... So lets start off with a simple sundal recipe for Vinayagar Chathurthi...

~*What U Need*~
White Channa/Kondakadalai - 1/2 cup
Coconut - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste

To temper:
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
Red Chillies - 2
Curry leaves - few

How I Made it:
Soak channa overnight and pressure cook until soft (4-5 whistles). Heat oil in a pan, and temper with mustard seeds, urad dhal, red chilli and curry leaves. Add a dash of hing powder. Add the cooked channa and mix well. Add coconut, stir well and remove from flame.

Serve warm!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
