Green gram sundal

It is one of the Navaratri snacks. I usually prepare this sundal on Tuesday or friday on Navaratri time. I have heard that there are different sundals for different days during Navaratri. All dishes made with Jaggery are close and Sacred to Ambal or Goddess Parvathy.
We usually prepare variety rice in the morning and offer as prasadham and sundal in the evening. Today being the first day of Navaratri, we prepare Sweet Pongal (recipe here) in the morning and since today being tuesday I prepared Payaru sundal.

You need:
Green gram - 1 cup
Coconut - 3 tsp
Jaggery - powdered 3 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard - 1/4 tsp

Soak the green gram for 3 -4 hours and cook for 2 whistles. In a pan, add oil and splutter mustard seeds. Then add the cooked green gram and just saute in low flame. Now add the coconut and saute for a while. Turn the flame off. Add the powdered jaggery and close the lid. After some time, the sundal is ready to eat.
It is yummy and very healthy. You can also use sprouted green gram which is healthier.
