Peanut Sundal – Masala Kadalai Sundal

October 10, 2013 Navaratri SpecialNO Onion NO Garlic  One comment

Peanuts are very healthy. This Peanut Sundal is yet another easy sundal variety for Navratri, with a dash of amchur which is nothng but dry mango powder. Thenga, Manga, Pattani sundal is a very famous sundal that is sold in Chennai beaches. I simply love it and wanted that taste, but unfortunately could not grab a mango. So used mango powder. U can serve this is an evening snack. This protein rich sundal can be given to kids as well.. Although I am not a big fan of peanuts, I like this crunchy, tangy Peanut Sundal. Likewise try my Green Gram Sweet Sundal.

Now to the recipe…

Peanut Sundal My Magic Pan



  1. I used readymade packed peanuts, so had to soak and cook. On the other hand if u are using fresh peanuts u can cook them directly.
  2. Have used amchur. U can use freshly chopped mango pieces for a crunchy version.
