Kerala Parippu Curry / Moong Daal Curry / Split Green Bean Curry

Parippu Curry

Loved to see the sun shining after 2 weeks of continuous pouring....What a great relief...

In Kerala , the place which is blessed with a tropical weather I used run away from the scorching sun , longing to be in some place with a chilling weather....Never thought , I will be waiting to see sun this way.....Yes SUN is the source of all our energy....

So finally I stepped out with  my camera to take a shot of this simple parippu curry which was ready in my kitchen waiting to be transferred to the lunch box....Got a snap just before that to share with you all....

And here is the recipe ...

  1. Moong Daal / Split green gram        -  1/2 cup
  2. Grated coconut                                   - 1/4 cup

  4. Garlic                                                    - 2 pods
  5. Green Chillie                                       - 1 [ large ]
  6. Turmeric Powder                              - 1/2 tsp
