A traditional south Indian dish. This sundal is made with chickpeas, split black lentils, mustard seeds, chillies, mango and coconut. It's delicious, flavoursome and highly nutritious.
Skinned split black lentils (urad dal), fresh curry leaves and asafoetida powder can be found in Indian/South Asian grocery stores.
We liked this dish. I`ve never tried chickpeas with sweet things before. Very interesting flavor and very easy to make too. I guess it will be the easiest thing if you use canned chickpeas. - 16 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very good. The combination of ingredients was not familiar to me, but it ended up being a very nice weeknight meal. I made as directed in the recipe, except I used prepared shredded unsweetened coconut because I couldn't find any good fresh coconut at my grocery store. - 13 Sep 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
