Mixed Pulses Sundal

Prasadam / Nivedyam for Navratri Recipes - Mixed Pulses Sundal / Mixed Pulses Stir Fry Sabji. “Prasadam” means an edible food that is first offered to a God / deity and then distributed in his/her name to followers/others as good sign. 

Lentils, pulses and sprouts stir fry sabji’s /side dishes are called as "Sundal" in Tamil language. If i try to translate Sundal in English, i would like to put it in the category of Salad. Salad means ready-to-eat dish. Though many salads use raw ingredients, some use cooked ingredients like sundal varieties.
