Thenga Manga Soya Sundal | Navarathri Special


Thenga Manga Soya Sundal
With Navarathri coming soon its time to start thinking about the golu theme and also variety of sundal's for offering everyday. Thenga Manga Soya Sundal is a dish similar to the sundal we get in beach in Chennai. Luckily we still get raw mango here from other countries in Mustafa hence the mango season is still on for us. Soya beans is combined and cooked with raw mango, fresh coconut,chili powder and curry leaves.The dish gets a nice flavor since we temper the sundal with coconut oil and mustard. 
I got Soya instead of peas by mistake and did not know what to do. So I tried the same dish which I planned with peas and it turned out to be very good.  There is not much taste difference except that we can feel the taste of soya rather than peas.
Onion is optional and during Navarathri it can be ignored.
However the taste was simply awesome and reminded me my childhood memories in Marina Beach.
