Moong Dal Sundal | Pasi Paruppu Sundal

Pasi paruppu Sundal | Moong dal Sundal is easy and healthy dish. Though it's simple to make, you have to be very careful while cooking moong dal. If it's over cooked, the texture won't be crunchy and seperated.  I usually make this Sundal as prasadham during navaratri festival.  Sometimes I serve this as evening snack.


1/2 cup Moong dal

2 to 3 tbsp of Coconut
Salt to taste

To temper

1 tbsp of oil
1/2 tsp of urad dal
3/4 tsp of mustard seed
3 to 4 no of dry red chilli
A sprig of curry leaves
A pinch of asafoetida


Dry roast moong dal  until it turn to slightly golden brown color and set aside.

Add water and salt in a pan, bring them to boil. Once it started boiling vigorously add roasted moong dal into it.

Cook until it soft and separated (it takes few minutes to cook, keep an eye on it. Don't over cook them)

Once it cooked, strain water and keep the moong dal aside.

Heat oil in a pan, add the ingredients mentioned under 'to temper'.  Once it sputtered, add cooked moong dal and coconut. Mix all well and remove it from flame.
