Onam Parippu curry/Katti parippu


Moong dal/cherupayar parippu - 3/4 cup

Ghee - 1/2 tsp

Salt as required

Coconut oil - 2 tbsp

Curry leaves - 3 sprigs

To grind
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Cumin seeds/Jeerakam - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp


Heat ghee in a pan, roast moong dal. Now cook moong dal with water and salt. Mash the cooked dal a little. Set this aside.

Grind grated coconut, cumin seeds and turmeric powder to get a smooth paste. Now add the smooth paste to the cooked dal. When it reaches a medium thick consistency, pour coconut oil and curry leaves. Mix well. Don't make the curry too thick as dal thickens as it sits for sometime.

  12. Wonderful. I always like to have this along with rice on anam sadhya. Sometime people bring this dish after sambar (lol). Parippu (dhal), with ghee is supposed to be the first item in onam sadhya.

    I am wishing special onam to all off you. My special onam wishes to you. Also expecting some thing special for onam 2014, so that I can try it

    Happy Onam
