Peanut Sundal Recipe/ Verkadalai Sundal | Navaratri Recipes

Yet another Navaratri Sundal recipe, Peanut Sundal. I love roasted masala peanuts and peanuts in the mixture. The place where my mom works is famous for peanuts. One of my neighbors has peanuts farm and they used to give us fresh peanuts. Mom cooks the peanuts and makes sundal as an evening snack. Even though I am not fond of cooked peanuts, I have tried it. I haven't introduced peanuts to Happy until now since I have read somewhere that peanuts may create allergic reactions for babies under two years. Mainly for making this Navaratri sundal, I purchased both dry and fresh peanuts last week. It is one of the simple and healthy snacks. 

Raw Peanuts (Dry or Fresh) - 1 Cup 
Coconut - 1/8 Cup 
Salt - as required  
To Temper: 
Oil - 1 tbsp 
Mustard - 1 tsp 
Curry leaves - few 
Dry Red Chilli - 2
Urad dal - 1 tsp 
Asafoetida - a pinch
1. Soak peanuts for 1 or 2 hours. Pressure cook it with immersing level water and salt for 3 to 4 whistles. Drain the water and keep it aside.
2. In a pan, add some oil and allow the mustard,curry leaves to splutter. Then add the dry red chilli, urad dal and asafoetida. After few mins, add the cooked peanuts and grated coconut. Once it is lightly heated, switch off the flame.
Serve it warm as a snack and enjoy.

Points to remember:
  • If you are using fresh peanuts, then it is not required to soak. Directly pressure cook for 1 whistle and remove the shell. Only dry readymade peanuts need to be soaked.
Warm Regards,
