Onam festival is nearing and you must be all planning for the Ona sadya. Parippu curry is one of the essential dishes of a Kerala sadya. It is made with split yellow moong dal (lentils) with ground coconut paste and tempered with shallots. Parippu curry is the first thing we eat mixing it with rice and ghee before going for the first course with sambar.
On normal days too you can prepare this lentil curry and you just need pappadam or chips and pickle as accompaniments. If you like to have some vegetables on the side, bhindi (vendakkai) fry or any mezhukkupuratti will pair well with parippu curry. Try this parippu curry for your Ona sadya this year and enjoy with family.
Notes and Tips
- This curry is made with yellow moong dal only. Other lentils will give different flavor to the curry.
