Fresh Green Peas Sundal For Navratri Delight
Festivals are incomplete without delicious cuisines in India. As part of this navratri / Dussehra the first day I prepared this delicious green peas sundal as offering to god. This can be made with fresh green peas / dried / frozen peas depends on the availability. The green peas are cooked till soft. It is seasoned with green chilli for spiciness, garnished with coconut to enhance flavor and with dash of freshly grated raw mango to add tangerine taste. All these ingredients make this dish a delectable preparation that goes well with any main course. This can be served as evening snacks for kids.
