Paruppu with rice

Ingredients: Serves 2-3

Toor dhal - 1 cup
Red chilli flakes - 1 1/2 tsp
Grated coconut - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Broken white lentils - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Water - enough to cook the dhal + 3 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Coconut Oil - 1 tbsp


Cook and mash the toor dhal well using a pressure cooker. This should be in a thick paste consistency. Heat oil in a pan. Saute mustard and white lentil. Add red chilli flakes and coconut. Add in the dhal before the flakes get burnt. Add turmeric, salt and 3 tbsp of water to give it a little flowing form. Cook for 5 mins in medium. Serve hot with rice. Can be garnished with curry/coriander leaves.
