Parippu is a dhal from Southern India or Sri Lanka. If you use my no-fat coconut milk, then this dish of protein-rich lentils is very good for you.

Dhal

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 1/2 cups red lentils, rinsed
2 onions, roughly chopped
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 long green chillies, finely sliced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
500ml Vegetable stock
250ml No-fat coconut milk

To finish

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
2 onions, finely chopped
12 curry leaves

Method

  1. Place the dhal ingredients in a large heavy-based saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over low–medium heat. Add the cumin and mustard seeds and fry for 1–2 minutes until they begin to pop. Add the onion and curry leaves and continue to fry for around 7–8 minutes until the onion is well browned. Stir the onion mixture through the lentils, then serve.
