Sundakkai Pachadi Recipe

Sundakkai Pachadi is my hubby’s favorite. Neither me nor my mom cooked sundakkai so far. All I know is, sundakkai is used to make just vathal. During the shopping, we found fresh turkey berry and thought of buying a small quantity to try it. I browsed for the recipes and tried this pachadi by adding toor dhal. Initially I thought, it will taste very bitter. But after tasting it, I really liked it. Moreover, it has got lots of health benefits and medicinal values. Planning to try this recipe whenever this turkey berry is available.
