The title is what you hear ,when you stroll the
beaches in Chennai.
These are prepared hygienically,and sold in
paper cones.This is one dish, we don’t think
hard when at the beach to buy and pop in your
mouth while you walk, or while the waves
caress your legs.
Mostly the people who sit and analyse,or stare
at the waves will have this in their hands.
This is like comfort food ,addictive,a pop in the
mouth it’s non stop .
Healthy and tasty dish .
Now let me take the opportunity to translate
the title for those who do not know Tamil.
Pattani-Peas / gram
Sundal -is the mixture altogether
The beach Sundal is mostly made with white
chick peas .Today I have the recipe with brown
chickpea which is considered more nutritious.
There are many types of chickpeas ,the white,
brown, black ,green .
You can make this with any peas of your choice
To name a few – cowpea,soya bean,boiled
So let’s get into the simple recipe
1 cup chick peas soaked overnight
1 raw mango grated
1/2 cup coconut
Few strips green chillies
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
2 dry chillies
Few curry leaves
Tiny cut pieces of coconut
A pinch of asafoetida
1/4 tsp chilli powder ( optional)
Cook the soaked peas till soft , and strain the
Heat oil ,add mustard , asafoetida,curry leaves,
When the mustard starts to splitter add the
peas and the rest of the ingredients,and toss
well.Remove from fire .
(1 second after tempering is enough)
