How to make sweet sundal for Navarathri

Though spicy sundal is the main neivedhyam for Navarathri, whole moong dal, Karamani dal, Bengal gram dal can be made as sweet sundal using Jaggery. (It is better not to use sugar).

Broken Channa Dal (Bengal Gram Dal), Moong dal or Karamani - 2 cups
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 2 pinches (or made from 4 to 6 nos)
Jaggery - 1 cup

Soak the dals (except broken channa dal) over night. Pressure cooks the dal. In a pan add 1/5th cup of water and jaggery. Make thick jaggery syrup. Filter it and pour it back again to the pan after washing it. Add the cooked dal. Allow the extra water to evaporate. Add grated coconut and cardamom powder and mix well.
