Rajma Sundal Recipe | Red Kidney Beans Sundal Recipe - Healthy Tea Time Snack

Rajma Sundal Recipe
V and kids like to eat Sundal and I try to make any Sundal Variety atleast weekly once a week for our snack time. Sundals are not only healthy and filling to eat, these are very simple to cook and can be made in many variations. Masala Sundal, Varuthu Aracha Sundal, No Onion Prasadam Sundal, Paruppu Sundal, Chaat Sundal and so on. Today's sundal variety is a simple one with onions in it. The crunch taste from the onion adds lovely taste and flavor to the sundal.

Rajma Sundal Recipe
So, I like to add more onions in my sundal except when I Make it for Neivedyams. Few days back I made this Rajma Sundal for my kids after school snack and they loved it. Sundals are one of the best way to make your kids eat Legumes & Lentils. Do try this Rajma Protein rich Sundal and am sure your kids will love it.
