Sundal or chickpea with mango gratings and coconut ,a munching delicacy when at the
beaches or as an evening tea serve is the main recipe today.
As raw mangoes are in plenty this season ,this idea of mixing sundal and rice with a little
fusion turned successful.
This can be served with raita,or any kormas you like.This is an inclusion to the variety
rice list,and lunch box category. MANGO RICE -link to my previous post
