Kadale Bele Sundal Recipe with step by step pictures

Kadalai paruppu / Kadale Bele is channa dal. Sundal is an easy protein packed snack made by cooking channa dal and tempering it with some spices.

This is one of the dishes that get done during Navrathri festival as a Neivedhyam to the Goddess.

In my place, this gets done often, as a snack with coffee or as a snack in the kids snack box. Though we make this often, I have never posted the dish here. Since the theme this month is protein rich, I felt it will be apt to post this now.

Generally, we don’t add onion to this dish. Grated ginger is added to give a nice flavor and it helps in digestion too. I soak the dal for about half an hour so that it cooks faster. Sometimes,when I am running out of time, I add hot water to the dal before pressure cooking it.

  1. This is my favourite sundal and brings back memories of golu during my childhood when we would visit all the neighbours’ houses and Sundal would be dinner. Your Sundal looks just rightly cooked with the bite and not mashed up. Yum

  2. u r lining up stuff for navaratri 🙂 i also use the pressure cook to make this real fast. I also make it with some ginger on non-festival days to give it a zing and for easy digestion too.

  3. Sundal was an everyday dish at my place since my younger brother would eat only that as a side dish to the rice. Chana dal never made it to the everyday list, but still would be prepared for the pooja time.
