Parippu Curry - Kerala Parippu Curry / Dal Curry

Kerala Parippu curry
Dal is an ineluctable part of Indian diet.  It's a practice in South India to serve parippu with ghee first on sadhya/feast. It tastes awesome that goes well with pappadam/appalam and will be loved by all ages.  I love the parippu podi served in restaurants with ghee.. In Kerala, parippu curry is prepared with moong dal and coconut paste...
