Navarathiri Special Day 7 – Sweet Karamani Sundal

Sweet Karamani Sundal

We are celebrating Navarathiri in my household by preparing different sundals for each and everyday. Check out how we celebrated day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4, day 5, day 6. For day 7, we prepared a different sweet karamani sundal (sweet black eyed peas) instead of the usual savory version. I soaked the black eyed peas in water overnight.

Karamani Sundal


1. Karamani (Black Eyed Peas) – 1 Cup

2. Jaggery – 1/2 Cup

3. Coconut – 1/4 Cup

4. Oil to temper

5. Salt to taste

6. Mustard Seeds – 1/4 tsp

7. Red Chilli – 1

8. Coriander Leaves to garnish


1. Pressure cook the soaked black eyed peas along with required salt for 1 whistle in a pressure cooker. Once its done, open the cooker and check the consistency of the peas. You should be able to easily crush it between your fingers. If its not done, cook for one more whistle

2. In a pan, heat oil. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, red chilli and the cooked black eyed peas. Add powdered jaggery and mix well. Finally add coconut powder and mix the sundal well

3. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with coriander leaves
