Oct 1 - Adzuki bean sundal (Navratri Day 1)

Adzuki beans are used generally to make the sweet variety of sundal as offerings for Navratri, they tend to mush up when cooked in the pressure cooker. I preseoaked the beans and decided to boil it in water and they cooked up just enough to keep their shape.
The procedure for making sundal is standard, heat a tablespoon of oil, temper with mustard, urad dal & curry leaves, add in finely chopped green chilies followed by the cooked beans. Add salt and allow the residual water to evaporate. Finish with adding grated coconut and a drizzle of lime juice. My substitutions here were fish pepper instead of green chilies and slivers of green mango for the tart factor.
