Butter Beans Masala Sundal

 Navarathiri is around the corner and i miss this 9 days of festivals.When i was in India during this 9 days, we never failed to go to temple and do poojas. Eventhough we dont keep golu, we will go to our friends and neighbours houses during this festivals to enjoy the poojas and sundals they gives us at the end of the pooja. Every year, navarathiri makes me nostalgic and wish a year i'll be in India to celebrate this 9 days of festivities.Everyday for this 9 days celebrations, people whoever celebrates will definitely make different sundal and gives it to everyone whoever visiting their home for the pooja. Its a tradition and obviously everyday its will be different sundal.

Eventhough i dont celebrated navarathiri at home, i love to make variety of sundals for our evening snacks. Sundal makes a nutritious and healthy snacks as they are prepared with legumes. Any legumes works wonder for making sundal and for today's post am sharing here a delicious, nutritious and flavourful sundal.Usually we make a tempering and add the cooked legumes, for a change i prepared a coarse paste of spices and added it after tempering, seriously this coarse paste of spices makes the difference. Am sure if you make this masala sundal once, you will definitely make all your sundal this way.Coming to this butter beans masala sundal, they tastes fantastic,nutritious and quite filling, an excellent evening snacks to enjoy without any guilt. Sending to WTML guest hosted by Asiya, event by Gayathri and to MLLA 64 guest hosted by Lourdes Princy, event by Lisa and Susan.
