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.
