Black Gram Sundal / Karuppu Ulundu Sundal - Navarathri Special!

Black Gram / Karuppu Ulundu is one of the most healthy and nutritious Legume.  It is very rich in protein, fibre and Vit B.     It is a great energy booster, helps to improve your bone strength and improve your digestion.

Though we are commonly using Urad Dhal (the skinned split black gram) in the preparation of Idli, Dosa, Vada in our daily basis; whole black gram is more nutritious than Urad Dhal.

Here I have tried spicy Sundal using black gram; you can also try sweet version with this.

Try this protein rich Sundal for your evening snack and also it is perfect to be offered as prasadam during South Indian Hindu festivals especially during Navarathri.
