Sweet Sundal (Cow Peas / Black eye Beans Sweet Salad)

This is first time I have done sweet sundal. When I was talking to my sister (who is preparing to keep golu) she was taking about this sundal. So wanted to try it. If you have sweet tooth try this sweeter version of sundal. I liked it.. It tasted great the next day.


Black eye bean / cow peas - 1/2 cup
Jaggery - 1/3 cup
Cardamom powder - a generous pinch
Coconut pieces - 2-3 tablespoon

Ghee - 2 teaspoon
Salt - a pinch


Soak black eye bean overnight or for 5-6 hours.
No need to add salt as this is sweet sundal recipe. Pressure cook for 1-2 whistles using less water. Bean should be soft but mushy or paste. So don't overcook. Drain off excess water and keep it aside. 
Cover jaggery with little water, melt it and filter it to remove any impurities.
Heat jaggery, add cardamom powder and a pinch of salt, when it starts boiling well, add the cooked bean  and mix it well. Cook till there is no moisture. Fry Chopped coconut in ghee and add to the sundal. Mix well
Serve it hot or cold

Green gram dhal can be used in the place of black eye peas.
