Soya Bean Sundal Recipe - Salt and Sweet Soya Bean Sundal for Navarathri

Soya Bean Sundal Recipe

I tried this Soya Bean Sundal today with 2 variations salt and a tangy version.The tangy version was suggested to me by my sis and it turned out to be super good.both jaggery and tamarind complimented well and lifted the taste of sundal to a different height, yes trust me amma was praising me...:) I love having sundal as mid day snack but too lazy to make and eat, but this Navarathri season is helping me get out my laziness :)

I am almost done with navarathri recipes this year may be 1 or 2 will post by this weekend not sure only if time permits.
