Thengai Maangai Pattani Sundal

Sundal is a type of salad very famous in Tamil Nadu. Particularly this sundal is a famous street food. You can see vendors selling this piping hot in small carts in bus stands and railway stations. Those who are blessed with a beach in Tamil Nadu will know about this sundal. Kids sell this in paper cones in beaches. My husband is a great fan of this sundal. He used to buy this whenever we go for a walk around Meenakshi Amman Temple at Madurai or when we go to the park with Sruti. As mangoes are in season, I tried to replicate the sundal at home and was satisfied with the result. PK gave me a thumbs up for the sundal. Even Sruti liked it very much. As the name suggests, the sundal has peas, mangoes and coconut as the main ingredients. I have diced the mangoes but you can also grate it and add to the sundal.

Mango-1/2 cup (diced into small cubes)
Carrot-2 -3 tbs Grated
