Sabudana Sundal | Sago Sundal | Javarasi Sundal another variety of Sundal we prepare for Navratri Festival. This sundal is the combination of Sago and Moong Dal.
Servings: 4 people
Heavy Bottomed Pan
- ½ Cup Javvarasi (Sago / Sabudana) 1 Cup - 250ml
- ¼ Cup Moong dal
- 1 tbsp Roasted Peanuts Curshed Coarsely
- Salt As Needed
- a Pinch Turmeric Powder
- 1 tsp Oil
- 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
- Few Curry leaves
- 2 Green Chili
- 1 tsp Ginger Chopped Finely
Preparation (Soaking of Sabudhana & Moong Dal)
Wash the sabudana thoroughly in fresh water. Sprinkle water over it and let it rest for overnight or for atleast 4 hours.. Do not add more water. If you add more water the sabudana becomes so soggy.
Let the Sabudana Soak overnight or atleast for 4 hours.
In the morning, wash and soak Moong Dal for about 2 hours. Soaking moong makes it easier to cook.
Cooking Moong Dal
After 2 hours of soaking, drain water from soaked moong dal.
Heat a heavy bottomed pan. Add a cup of water and add the soaked moong dal. Add a pinch of turmeric powder and allow the moong dal to cook. We are not cooking in pressure cooker, as the dal get cooked on the pan in less than 5 minutes or so.
The moongdal should not be over cooked or mushy. It should be tender. If we take a dal, then we should be able to break it easily. Remove it from the flame and strain the excess water.
Making of Sundal
Heat oil/ghee in the pan and add mustard seeds, when the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add broken chilli, curry leaves and hing and fry for a minute
Now add the cooked dal and mix well
To this add sabudhana, salt and mix well
Now add grated coconut, crushed peanut powder (optional) to the sundal and mix well.
The yummy sabudhana sundal is now ready for neivedhyam.
- We can use green gram dal sprouts instead of moon dal. We can separately cook the green gram dal sprouts and later add it with sabudhana
- Adding crushed peanut is optional. But this will certainly enhance the taste
