Pattani Sundal - green peas stir fry

#PattaniSundal - #GreenPeasStirFry : Whenever I think of #sundal, then immediately Chennai marina beach comes to my mind. Marina beach is very famous for sundal selling vendors and their tasty tasty sundal varieties. One of my favorite is pattani sundal served with raw mango pieces.
Sundal tastes very good only when it is prepared from dry pattani [ greenpeas ] since fresh greenpeas is slightly sweet in taste.
Here I would like to present the recipe for pattani sundal.
