Few decades back sundal was distributed to guests in pottalam as we call it. Now we can distribute it through ziploc plastic bags ! When we were young, we friends went to most houses in the street to see the Navaratri kolu but it was actually for the sundal pottalam. When we came out of a house we would open the pottalam immediately to see what sundal variety was inside!
2. Mochai sundal
3. Red karamani sundal
The third sundal variety for Navaratri season is red karamani sundal. The steps for making this sundal are as given in mochai sundal variety. However we can add half teaspoon coriander powder to get a different flavour.
Similarly, we can have pattani sundal, peanuts (verkadalai ) and rajma sundal
Kondakadali sundal - the same procedure as described for the other varieties above.
