My hubby always prefer cherupayar curry along with puttu, for me I like both kadala curry and cherupayar curry . I also like to eat puttu with bananas...I put some sugar and also a bit of ghee with bananas...Ghee makes puttu very tasty and I never think about the calories when I am having tasty food :) But afterwards guilt starts haunting me. I start thinking about work outs. Most of the times such good thoughts will bury deep inside without any affect.But few times I tried work outs ,used to do it regularly for one week and then again I will be back to square 1. In malyalam there is an old saying "Shankaran pinneyum thengil thanne "

Moong dhal _1/4 cup

shallots - 6-7

green chillies - 3 nos

Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp

turmeic powder - 1/4 tsp

Pepper powder - 3/4 tsp

Curry leaves

Mustard seeds

Ground coconut 1/4 cup


Soak moong dhal overnight and pressure cook the dhal adding chopped shallots. Add red chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt, pepper powder, curry leaves, green chillies and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the ground coconut and when it starts to boil turn off the fire.In a pan sputter mustard seeds and add redchillies. Add this to the curry.
