Parippu Curry made for Onam Sadya is made with Cherupayar in Kerala...this is one of the main dishes in Onam Sadya.We south indians usually make dal with toor dal or a mixture of dals so I thought its not going to be much of difference in taste, also when I heard the recipe had coconut I was held back...what coconut in dal?!! So the least expected recipe among all my onam sadya recipes is this parippu curry but trust me this became my most favourite in all the onam sadya recipes that I tried this yeare....This itself gave me a mini sadya feel on the day I made it....I just loved it so much the coconut flavour is the best in Kerala Parippu Curry. I had it with rice and beans mezhukupuratti
for lunch and reserved the leftover for dinner, it was great with chapathi too.There is also another version of parippu curry way makes use of split green gram.
This humble parippu curry with the combo of with rice and ghee, it was just divine.You don't even need any sidedish to go with this parippu , it tastes so good on its own.But I wish I had some papadam to go with this parippu curry...:)
