Sundal is specially prepared during festival season in South India. It is a dry preparation of lentils or legume tempered with fresh coconut. I decided to replace legume with Sweet corns today and the addition of pomegranates made the dish look so colourful.
You can also enjoy this Sweet corn sundal as an evening snack. So, sharing the recipe with you all and hope you make it during this festive season!
Check out the recipe to make Chickpeas sundal too from my blog.
