Vella Payaru / Payaru Sweet Sundal

This post has been lying in the draft for more than two months.  I made this sundal for navarathri. I followed my patti's traditional way of doing this sundal. Here goes the recipe.
Ingredients:-
  1. Red Karamani -  1 cup (soak it overnight)
  2. Jaggery - 1 cup (plus or minus acc to taste)
  3. cardamom - 3 (powder it)
  4. Ghee - 2 tsp
Pressure cook Karamani till its done (it took 5 whistles for me). In the mean time, take a heavy bottomed pan add the jaggery with required amount of water (little less than1 cup preferably) and let it melt. Remove impurities from it by filtering it in a thin cloth. Again pour the jaggery water in the same pan and let it boil. When it starts boiling really well, add the cooked karamani, powdered cardamom to it and let everything mix and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. When karamani mixes really well, turn off the stove and the add the ghee now and mix everything well.  This can be eaten as evening snack too.
