Muttai Paruppu Kuzhambu/ Egg Lentil Gravy

18:27 Niloufer Riyaz 3 Comments

This khuzhambu is one of the easiest n tasty gravy to make. You can make this gravy with either Tur Dhal or Moong Dhal. Using moong Dhal gives you a very mushy consistency. For making this I prefer to Use Tur Dhal. You can also add vegetables like potato, carrots, beans, Bottle  gourd, Broad beans etc., etc., instead of egg. This is little bland n goes perfect with Aliyar Sambal, Prawn fry etc., etc.,
