How to Make Sweet green gram sundal

  • Dry roast green gram till it gives out a pleasant aroma.
  • Switch off flame, add water and soak the green gram for half an hour.
  • Wash the soaked green gram, add fresh water and boil it.
  • Pinch one grain to check if it is cooked. The green gram should be soft enough to break easily, but it should not become mushy.
  • Add salt and boil for 2 more minutes and drain.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.
  • When the mustard seeds splutter, add the broken red chillies, curry leaves and then the green gram.
  • Add powdered jaggery and blend well on low flame.
  • Allow the jaggery to melt and stir for 2 more minutes.
  • Switch off flame and garnish with fresh grated coconut.
