How to prepare Serukeerai Pasiparuppu Poriyal
Wash and soak the moong dal for 15 - 20 mins.
Wash and chop the leaves, keep it aside.
Heat a non stick pan with oil, add mustard, urad dal, curry leaves, saute well.
Then add the chopped leaves, simmer, add turmeric powder, salt, cover with lid and simmer for 10 mins.
Now add the drained moong dal, red chili powder, combine everything. Simmer for another 10 mins.
When the leaves and the dal is cooked, switch off and serve with rice. This takes about 20 mins to get cooked.
We always have to be little cautious with adding salt to the greens, as it tends to become salty.
If you want you can par boil the moong dal and then add if you want a softer dal. I wanted the crunch, hence added it as such.
