Happy Onam to all my friends.
I'm celebrating my 100th post with Onam special dish Parippu Curry.I got the recipe from Hari Chandana's blog "Indian Cuisine".I made few changes to the dish according to my taste. The dish was delicious.
1 cup moong dal
1 cup finely chopped onion
Pinch of turmeric
1/2 cup coconut pieces
1 tbs cumin
4 green chilli's
1 tsp mustard
2 red chilli's
1 crushed garlic pod
1 Tbs ghee
Dry Roast moong dal till it turns light brown.Pressure cook it along with onions& turmeric for 2 whistles.
Mean while grind coconut, cumin, green chilli's & salt to a smooth paste.
Now mash the dash and mix it with the coconut paste and cook it for 10 mins.
Heat a pan with ghee add mustard once they start jumping add garlic & red chilli's. At last add curry leaves and switch of heat.
Mix dal with seasoning & it's read to serve.
1.Use coconut oil instead of ghee for a traditional curry.
2. Use less water to grind the coconut.
Out Come: I was worried about my hubby's reaction as he is hesitant to try new dishes but he surprised me saying it was too good...hmmm then I'm all happy :)
