Horse Gram Sundal - FOR VINAYAKAR CHATURTI / VARALAKSHMI POOJA / VARALAKSHMI Nombu

There are certain food / ingredients I must have every day otherwise my meal is not complete. Horse Gram is my favourite from my childhood however my mum does only horse gram porridge. I just love it. When she does it I have it for almost every meal. Now I do almost all the dishes with it. Luckily my whole family love it too. This is very healthy sundal salad. I do that for offering to god too. As there is no Onion in it
