Sundal is a kind of South Indian evening snacks made with Dry beans aka Legumes (not to mistake with the French word, in French 'legumes' means 'vegetables'). Sundal are made especially during Navarathiri festival, which calls for 9 days of celebrations. However we doesnt need any reason to dish out this protein rich snacks to feed our loved ones with less efforts. Actually sundal is prepared easily with cooked beans like chickpeas, black-eyed beans etc which is simply tempered with usual tempering spices and flavored with curry leaves. Though some sundal preparation calls for some exclusive spice powder in case if you want to prepare the sundal with a twist. My today's post in one among those sundal with a twist, since rajma aka red kidney beans doesnt tastes like other legumes, its better to toss it with a spice powder to make the sundal preparation more interesting.

Arroz Congri/Congris is typically a Cuban black beans rice,though many different variations do exists and one among is this red beans and rice version. Congri is prepared mostly with meat especially pork, but i opted for vegetarian version actually a vegan one. However i followed this recipe, this red beans and rice is from eastern part of Cuba, though many people consider this dish as a signature dish of Oriente province. Traditionally this rice dish is cooked with fat from pork meat and ham is added to the rice to make this dish as a complete meal. However this vegan version tastes simply fabulous and quite nutritious to enjoy as a main course with some grilled vegetables or pan fried potatoes. Since this dish calls for long grain rice, you can also serve this red beans rice a salad.
