Now Coming to the recipe, Sundals is one of the must Nivedyam for Vinayagar Chaturthi Pooja and Navarathri. Sundals are easy to make stir fry with boiled legumes & lentils. You can use any desired legumes and lentils. Today am sharing Peanut Sundal. I love boiled peanuts with fresh peanuts. Comfort and healthy munch while watching TV and playing games, but we couldn't find fresh peanuts all the time. But still you can make boiled with dry raw peanuts. Just soak it and use, its so simple and very tasty sundal.

  1. Dry Raw Peanuts    1 cup
  2. Onion   1 medium(finely chopped)
  3. Shredded coconut    2-3 tbsp
  4. Turmeric powder    a pinch
  5. Coriander leaves/Cilantro     2 tbsp (finely chopped)
  6. Salt    to taste
To Temper
  1. Oil     2 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds    1/2 tsp
  3. Channa dal/Bengal gram dal    1tbsp
  4. Dry Red Chilli    2 no.s
  5. Curry leaves     1 sprig
  6. Hing/Asafoetida    a pinch

  • Soak Peanuts with enough water for minimum 2-3 hours.
  • After that drain that water and pressure cook with water 2-3 cups of water and enough salt for 1 or 2 whistles or cook in sauce pan until soft and tender.( this method will prevent mushy or over cooked peanuts, i follow this method).
  • Once done drain excess water and allow to cool for a while.
  • Heat oil in a pan, when its get heated add mustard seeds allow to pop then add chana dal and fry till golden brown.
  • After that add finely chopped onions, dry red chilli, curry leaves, hing and saute for a minute.
  • Then add cooked peanuts, turmeric powder and stir fry for a minute.
  • And add shredded coconuts and stir fry and finally add finely chopped cilantro, mix well and switch off the stove.
  • That's it...Tasty Peanut Sundal ready.

Adding onion is optional, i like to add onions to my peanut sundal but for pooja or nivedyam onions is avoided.
The same way you can also make Chickpeas Sundal, Peas Sundal, Beans Sundal except you need to soak it over night or 6 hrs.
