Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal/Yellow Peas Sundal

Pondicherry beach, nothing will replace pondicherry beach and one of the best place u will surely watch out everyday whenever u go around the city if u r born and brought up in pondicherry...The beaches are the best place to relax in Pondicherry.The 1500 metre long beach that borders the town on the eastern side and an ideal place for swimming and sun bathing. There are two historical monuments on the beach.. One is the 4m tall statue of Mahatma Gandhi and the other is the War Memorial, built by the French in commemoration of the soldiers who died in the First World War. The Light House which stands 29m high and is over than 150 years old. This yellow peas sundal brings me loads of marvellous memories, i still remember an old man who used to sell this thenga manga pattani sundal near to Pondicherry Mairie every evening, we just love his sundal and whenever we go to the beach my dad used to buy for us...This is my mom version of beach sundal, i do often for our evening snacks which i prepared after a long for today's snacks..
