Verkadalai sundal is a delicious and healthy snack made with boiled peanuts. Peanuts are rich in protein and good for health. I have used minimal oil to make this sundal which makes it even more healthier.
Check out the video to make this snack:
Many avoid eating peanuts as it contains fats along with proteins. What they do not understand is that peanuts contain good fats and that fats is also essential for body to adsorb key Vitamins like Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E. Anything eaten in limited portion does not harm you. You can easily eat 2 tablespoons of Peanuts and include it in your daily intake.
