Sweet Sundal | Mixed Dal Sweet Sundal

Sweet Sundal is made using Mixed Dal and Jaggery Syrup. This is prepared usually for the Navarathri festival as an offering to god and also to distribute to friends and family. Usually we prepare the savory version of the sundal, but this is one is unique. This can be prepared using just one dal (mostly Green Moong), but here i have used Mixed Dals.
