Cowpea / Karamani payaru Chundal - sweet version, for Navaratri

A Festive period which I long for, every year is Navaratri. It had always been a very pleasant and joyful experience as we have the opportunity to visit golu kept at other's place, hear devotional songs sung by guests - sometimes by hosts, get variety of chundal prashad and what not!

Finally navaratri has arrived.....  My 500th Post! celebrating it with a sweet offering!

Elders say 'start with a sweet', which is considered as a good sign for starting good things. So here I am making Sweet Chundal and sharing with you the procedure using cowpeas (chawli bean / Karamani payaru). Chundal is a very healthy snack as it contains legumes rich in nutrients. Our ancestors always included healthy dishes specially on festive occasions. Cow peas supplies Proteins, Carbs, Vitamins and minerals. You may use the white or the red colored cow peas for this recipe.

Ingredients :

  1. Cowpea - 1 Cup
  2. Jaggery  - 1/2 Cup (shredded)
  3. Coconut - 1/4 Cup (grated)
  4. Ghee - 3 tbsp
Procedure :-

Lobiya | Karamani | Payaru | Chavli | Cow Pea (Black eyed Pea)

  • Soak cowpea for 8 hours (or overnight). Discard that water and fill with fresh water. Pressure cook adding a pinch of salt, till done
  • Mix jagery with little water and dissolve it. Filter to remove impurities.
  • Heat a wok, add the filtered jaggery water and bring to boil
  • When it starts bubbling, add the cowpeas, boil till it becomes dry.
  • Add grated coconut and ghee (Clarified Butter), Mix well.
  • Cowpea | Karamani Payaru  | Lobia - Sweet Chundal is ready !
  • Other legume / lentil that can be used for this sweet chundal recipe is Green Gram (Moong).
  • Serve it with Ripe Banana - Best combo to enjoy this healthy snack. Can be given to children as a evening snack.

Jai Ma Ambe!
