Beach Sundal Gravy / Kaiyendhi Bhavan Masala Sundal / Thattukada Street food Snacks Recipe

Beach Sundal Gravy
My hubby is fond of this street food snack made with dried yellow peas ( note do not use dried green peas for this recipe that doesn't give authentic taste) simmered in tomato sauce. While served masala vada or onion samosa are crushed on a plate then topped with this peas gravy and chopped raw onions. Though this pattani masala sundal is very tasty I'm scared of such street food as they are prepared in unhealthy way. So I started making this at home to satisfy his taste buds. Make sure you make some masala vada, onion samosa or even bajji to go with this pattani sundal.

Onion minced - 1 no
Tomato minced - 2 no
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp

Other things required

Chefs tips
1. There is no proper recipe for this street food, the base ingredients are dried yellow peas, tomatoes and onions. You can throw whatever spice powder available in your kitchen in this recipe.
2. The most important thing is this sundal gravy has to be watery with little less salt for very authentic taste;-)
