How to Make Parippu Varutharachathu

  • Take a pan and put the lentils, chopped tomatoes into it, along with adequate water. Cook, till done. Keep aside.
  • Heat 2 tsps of oil in a pan. Add the grated coconut, shallots, garlic, ginger and curry leaves. Roast it, till it turns brown.
  • Add turmeric, chilli and coriander powder. Roast on slow fire, till the raw smell goes.
  • Switch off heat and let it cool in a plate.
  • Once cool, grind to a smooth, fine paste, by adding very little water.
  • Add the ground paste to the cooked lentils, along with salt and mix well. Add water as required.
  • When the mixture comes to a boil and oil comes to the surface, turn off the heat.
  • For tempering:
  • Heat the oil and add the mustard seeds. When they start to crackle, add the sliced shallots, curry leaves and red chillies for a minute.
  • Pour this on top of the lentil curry. Serve hot with rice.
