Kerala Cherupayar Parippu Curry / Yellow Moong Dal Curry


My admiration for this ingenuous face started with his Mr Darcy, grew with the stupid Lord who snatches Shakespeare's love in Shakespeare in Love( Gosh!!!! I love that movie) and Bj's Diary...and reached its zenith with his Kings Speech. Well..well..well...Colin Firth ...I heart you..you really made a King's speech!!!!!

Talk about paradigm shift , here I am from movie to a nadan kerala recipe...

Kerala parippu Curry is one of the first things i learnt to make after coming here. One of the best dishes in Onam sadya , we love  this with steaming rice and fried pappadoms. 



Recipe for Sadya Special Cherupayar Parippu Curry

To (pressure) cook

Yellow Moon dal/ Cheru payar Parippu - 1 cup
Turmeric Powder - a pinch
Salt to taste

To Grind 
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Green chilies - 2 chopped
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Garlic - 1 love
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste

For tempering 
Dried red chiles - 2
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Chopped small onion - 1 table spoon
Curry leaves - 4-5


Wash and Soak the Moong Dal for at least 20 minutes and pressure cook it by adding water and salt.
( I normally add 1 cup water). Cook for 2-3 whistles. Mash it well and keep aside
Grind coconut , Green chilies, turmeric powder , garlic, cumin seeds and salt to a fine paste.
Bring to Boil the cooked Dal and add the coconut paste to it and mix well. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add more water if you like it to be in a thin consistency .
Heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds.
When they pop up add dried red chiles and curry leaves and fry for 30 seconds.
Add chopped small onion and fry till brown.
Pour this over the curry and serve warm

Njoy it with White rice and Pappadoms

Cheers

Sarah
