Field beans Masala Sundal - Field beans Masala Salad - Mochai Masala Sundal - Festival recipe - Pooja recipe - Naivedyam Recipes

I make sundal pretty much every other day. Last week When I made sundal with Chickpea my son was mixing with carrot chutney. I asked him what he was doing.. He asked me have you tried this combo? I tried it not bad at all. I told him the next time I make Sundal I will try this for masala. So that's the story of how this recipe was born. It is really very tasty and healthy masala too
