Sundal is a traditional snack prepared during festival days like Durga Pooja etc. I tried my hand at combining an Italian Ingredient with South Indian Tadka to make a very tasty snack. You can serve this as a breakfast meal or can pack them in the lunch box for kids.
Cooked Pasta (Macaroni) – 2cups
Oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds – ½ tsp
Cumin Seeds – ½ tsp
Asafoetida – one small pinch
Green Chillies – 2 (sliced)
Curry Leaves – from 1 twig
Shredded Coconut – 3 tbsp
Roasted Peanuts – 3 tbsp
Coriander Leaves – 2 tbsp
Lemon Juice – ½ tsp
