Karamani / Lobia Sundal | Black eyed beans Stir fry


Share with friends and family

Karamani / Lobia sundal is very simple to prepare like any other sundal . Compared to other beans cowpeas or lobia requires less soaking time and not 8 to 10 hrs like kabuli chana or dried yellow peas .
If you have soaked karamani ready on hand then all it takes it 15 mins to put this sundal together. 


Normally, any sundal has very simple seasoning of either sundal/curry podi and coconut gratings. Today's sundal  is my mom's recipe and the seasoning used is rasam powder + fresh coconut gratings . Do try this sundal during this navaratri and offer it all those who come home .

During Sharda Navratri a different variety of sundal is made on all the 9 days as an offering and then shared with all the ladies who come home for thamboolam .
