Sri Lankan Paruppu Kari, quite a delicious and easy dish, which doesnt need, not even a single drop of oil..this paruppu kari tastes damn delicious and prepared with simple ingredients like masoor dal, coconut milk, onion and green chillies spiced with cumin seeds and pepper corns..Adding coconut milk to this dal enhance the flavour of this dal curry and also makes more tastier than our usual versions of dal curries...This delicious paruppu kari tastes too good with simple hot rice topped with few drops of ghee..We enjoyed this yummy delicious lentils curry made with simple ingredients...U know wat this dal curry also need not even half an hour to prepare and its really very healthy...This Sri Lankan dal curry goes to AWED-Sri Lanka guest hosted by Siri, event started by DK ...Am also sending this paruppu kari dish to MLLA-Twelfth helping guest hosted by Apu of Annarasa, event started by  Susan...
