Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal

4 from 1 vote

‘Thenga Manga Pattani Sundal’ a healthy but scrumptious snack that takes me down the memory lane of relishing this every summer at Merina Beach, Chennai. Prepared with very few commonly used ingredients, this sundal is delectable and flavourful with the slight hint of tanginess from raw mangoes. This recipe can be served as a party appetizer or as an evening snack along with tea.
