Inippu Karamani Sundal | Sweet Cowpea Sundal with step by step pictures

In my over enthusiasm to post sundal recipes for week 4 in the Mega Blogging Marathon #80, themed Protein Rich Dishes, I skipped one of the sub themes that was ready with pictures.

This week was cook, click, post kind of days and with Navarathri preparations, the schedule became hectic. This evening I remembered that a post was due and had nothing to fall back to except to get Amma’s suggestions for a recipe.

I asked her for something fast to prepare as I had to click before the sun went down. She recollected this dish from her childhood, where her mom would keep this ready as an after school snack.

This recipe needs a jaggery syrup to be mixed with the lentils and since I was racing the time, she suggested I add grated jaggery as such!

Wow! What a recipe! Got done so fast and tasted delicious too!!

Dry roast the cowpeas till brown spots appear. Take it in a vessel and add enough water to cook it. Pressure cook it for 4 whistles / till done. It should not get mushy.

Drain and discard the water used to cook it. Transfer to a bowl. While it is still hot, add grated / powdered jaggery , ginger powder and grated coconut.Mix well

Instant sweet sundal is ready!

  1. I usually go for sugar in inippu sundal recipes, but adding jaggery must make it so flavourful. Adding jaggery syrup sounds so good. Do post if you try that version too..

  2. Fantastic sundal PJ..I love this and the sweetness that jaggery gives..I wanted to make an inippyu sundal and it turned into something else…cooking clicking and posting is tough girl..guess I am no longer young one to do that these days..heheheh

  3. I remember eating something similar as a kid….making me too nostalgic! Can imagine how hectic it is to cook, click and pos ton the same day. Yummy sundal….want to grab some right away!

  4. Smart girl ! And what an awesome dish . After cooking the Udupi Thali , I absorbed the lentil jaggery flavour, I can easily understand this sweet Sundal. It sounds delicious and btw I did not know a sweet sundal ever existed !
