Pattani Sundal (Frozen Green Peas Sundal)


Yesterday evening after returning from work hubby asked what Sundal today. I had planned to prepare Moong Dal Sundal, but then I realized I forgot to soak Dal. Then I remembered I had some frozen peas.  Amma use to prepare Sundal with dry peas by soaking and pressure cooking them, but I thought of trying with frozen peas. Sundal was ready in 5 minutes – quickest Sundal I ever had

Pattani Sundal

Preparation Time : 3 min | Cooking time : 5 mins | Serves : 2

Recipe Category : Appetizer/Snack


Frozen peas – 1 cup + 1/2 cup

Salt – To taste

Grated coconut – 1/3 cup

Green chillies – 1 (Adjust according to your taste)

Coriander leaves – 4 – 5 sprig

Ginger –  small piece ( approx 1/2 tsp)

To Temper:

Coconut Oil – 1 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp

Urad Dal – 1 tsp

Channa Dal – 1/2 tsp

Curry leaves – 1/2 sprig

Red chilli – 1

Hing – a generous pinch



  • Microwave peas for a minute and set aside


  • Blend coriander, chilli and coconut without adding water


  • Add oil to the pan, when the oil is hot add the items under ‘To Temper’ and let them crackle. Add the green peas and salt, toss them for a minute


  • Add the blended mixture and sautè for 2-3 minutes till raw smell goes off. Switch off the stove



My Notes:

  • Coconut oil gives nice aroma for sundal, so it is preferred
  • If you are using Dry Peas, then soak them overnight, or at least for 4 hrs in warm water.  Pour enough water and pressure cook for 3 whistles
  • Instead of adding coconut mixture at the end, you can also add after tempering
