Karamani Sundal – Pre or Post Workout Snack!

Karamani Sundal – Pre or Post Workout Snack!

Black Eye Beans Sundal:

I have been up to all healthy ways for whatever reason that I needed. Most of the days, people stay active and choose only healthy food from Monday through Friday, as soon as they see the calender hit Friday…many want to break the rules for some take-away meals! Other than that, often dream about lazying on the couch! In fact, being idle makes the muscles ache more than by mere work-out. So, the agenda here today is protein-packed black eye beans sundal. This is best suited for weightlifting workouts. The idea of chronicling every simple recipe is for some motivation! The best part about this kind of snack is that they only take approximately 20 minutes to prepare. Moreover, cooking for evening munch shouldn’t be a chore…it is a perfect opportunity to relax, re-fuel, ponder and awaken your senses.


Black eye beans 1 cup – soaked overnight
Turmeric 1 pinch
Green chilies 6 chopped
Ginger 2″ chopped
Coconut chopped few teaspoons
Curry leaves few
Cilantro leaves few
Asafoetida 1/4 spoon
Peppercorns 4-6
Cumin seeds 1/2 spoon
Mustard seeds 1/2 spoon
Sesame oil few spoons.


Soak the legumes overnight in water. Boil the same in a pressure cooker…maybe add salt at this point.

Now, in a wide wok, heat oil. Add the tempering spices, followed cooked legumes along with its water. Cook over high heat…until dry without much moisture.

Serve warm as an evening snack.
