Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal Recipe

by Sala @ Veggie Belly on November 3, 2011

A Guest Post for Shulie of Food Wanderings

Like me, if you are from the state of Tamil Nadu in India, you know the famous thenga manga pattani sundal you get on the beach in Madras. I see the city growing every time I visit – the buildings get taller, and the cars get fancier. But one thing remains the same – the thenga (coconut) manga (mango) pattani (peas) sundal on the beach. Young boys sell these from huge stainless steel buckets. I hope the tradition of beach goers buying a newspaper bundle of thenga manga pattani sundal on Marina beach never goes away.

For a recipe for this easy sundal, head over to my friend Shulie’s blog, read my guest post there and follow her on twitter.

A visit to the beach is not complete without buying sundal, manga, hot bhajji and roasted corn! I am from Chennai and I miss all this so much. Anytime I visit I defintiely eat all this :-) . Very nice pics to showcase the beach tradition.
