Parippu (moong dal curry)

Preparation time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 30 mins

This needs no introduction to Keralites, as this is the first dish served as a main course for any
sadya (Kerala feast). There are various versions of the curry. I was introduced to this one only after my marriage.

Ingredients
Moong dal-1 cup
Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Cumin seeds -1tsp
Garlic clove-1
Fresh coconut(grated) or Desiccated coconut-1/2cup
Curry leaves-a few
Salt to taste



Method
Dry roast the moong dal on medium heat for ten minutes. Cook it with sufficient water and turmeric. Grind the coconut with a little water and cumin seeds. Add to the boiling dal along with the curry leaves and salt. Cook for about 5 minutes and it is ready to relish with rice, ghee & pappadam.
