Green gram sundal / Green moong dal sundal is a healthy Sundal traditionally made for navaratri function. I have already posted the sweet green gram sundal. This recipe is the savoury version of green gram sundal. Hubby prefers savory version over the sweet version, but i like both the versions. I make this green gram sundal recipe often as an evening snack as it is filling. My tummy never kicks for the snacks if i have this green gram sundal at the evening.
