Peanut sundal

Peanut sundal, Verkadalai Sundal, Navaratri recipes

Peanut sundal is the first variety of sundal that comes in mind for evening snacks and special occasion. Peanut sundal is very easy to make, healthy and at the very same time delicious too. I have been waiting over a week to get hold of these fresh peanuts to make sundal. Though you can make it with dry peanuts too by soaking and boiling, I prefer making sundal with fresh peanuts only as they are much tastier. This recipe has very handful ingredients in its making and this sundal starts my navratri post! So lets get to the making!
