Paruppu Urundai Mor Kuzhambu - Paruppu Urundai More Kuzhambu - Paruppu Urundai More Kulambu - Simple Kuzhambu recipe

Paruppu urundai and mor kuzhambu is one of my most favourite dishes. When I attended a function in India they served paruppu urundai mor kuzhambu. Normally I use only thoor dal for the urundai. This time I have used both. If you prefer you can use thuvar / thoor dal and chana dal / bengal gram dal in equal proportion. This is perfect balanced dish for steamed rice Protein from Dhal and yogurt, Calcium from yogurt. This goes well with both white or brown steamed rice. This is perfect for lazy weekends
