About Madras Beach Sundal Recipe | Beach Sundal Recipe

When I think of Food in Indian the first thing pops in my mind is street food. While there are n number of street food to indulge , coming from down south beach sundal is something very close to my heart and This dish reminds me of fond memories of my childhood. Beach sundal as name says is an amazing street food of chennai which is made with white peas and topped with crispy vadas . The sundal is similar to bengali ghungni but in a different avatar.This is a perfect rainy day indulgence and perfect evening time snack which is protein rich and guilt free. Don't forget to add the toppings and the masala vadai which is what makes this dish delicious. Country- USA
