Mochai sundal | Field Beans Sundal | Snack recipe

When I blogged about the kara kuzhambu using mochai I have mentioned about making a sundal with the leftover soaked beans and this it that recipe.Making sundal is quite easy just pressure cook the soaked beans, temper with spices and freshly grated coconut and serve hot.Not any fancy ingredients used to make sundal. But here in this sundal variety I slightly changed by adding an roasted spice powder to give a flavorful twist to the normal sundal.I googled many recipes, got some ideas from it and did this.Do try this version and I"m sure you will love it.
