Masala Red Kidney Bean Sundal

Masala Red Kidney Bean Sundal

Masala Red Kidney Bean Sundal was made during Navratri Pooja as Neivedyam. I have used the red variety available instead of the regular long ones. This variety is smaller and red in colour. These also get cooked faster than the regular ones. I always have a problem in cooking Rajma to tender soft.

Instead of the regular sundal type, I added a roasted spice powder and that made all the difference. When I already have so many Sundal varieties, it is obvious I plan to change the recipe.

This was made along with Thakkali Sadam and made a good pair.

Masala Red Kidney Bean Sundal is part of the BM#81, Week 2 under Lentil Salads and sides.

    1. Yes Vaishali, as the lentil is quite bland, coconut adds lot of flavour, especially the freshly ground and grated one imparts nice nutty taste. Of course, if you are adding some dal spice powder, you can skip coconut.
