Paasipayaru Sweet Sundal

We are entering the 4th week of Blogging Marathon #43 and for this week I chose the Festival recipes.As Ganesh Chaturthi and Navaratri is nearing I  am sharing you all a simple sweet sundal made with paasipayaru/mung beans.
Coming to the recipe this sundal can be made with the soaked beans as well as with no prior soaking.For the instant version the bean needs to be dry roasted slightly and cooked.
But today I soaked and made it,here goes the recipe............................................

Paasipayaru Sweet Sundal

  Basic Information

   Preparation time ~ 5 minutes
   Cooking time ~ 20 minutes
   Soaking time ~ 10 hours
   Serves ~ 3

Whole mung beans/paasipayaru
1 cup(soaked)
1/4-1/3 cp
3-4 tbs
Cardamom powder/ellakai
a pinch
1/2 tsp

  • In bowl take 3 cups of water,let it boil now put 1/2 tsp of salt and add the mung beans cook it in a medium flame till it cooks (shouldnot turn mushy).Drain the water and keep it aside.
  • Now add the jaggery along with 1/4 cup of water in a pan,turn on the heat,let it melt.After it melts,pass it through a strainer to remove the scum.Keep the jaggery syrup in the same pan and let it boil to a thick consistency.Add the cooked mung beans. 
  • Mix it well once the jaggery syrup becomes thick.Finally add the gratedoconut and cardamom powder,mix it well.
  • Sweet sundal is ready.


  • The soaked one cooks very fast so I used a open pot to cook whereas the instant version needs to cooked in the Pressure cooker for a whistle or two.
  • When the sundal is hot it may be slightly watery or mushy but after cooling it will be separated.
