Parippu - Mung bean stew

Submitted by: BIGGIRL2082010

Introduction

A very traditional Kerala bean stew - the equivalent of the North Indian dahl. We typically eat this with a variety of thorens (warm salads made of a variety of vegetables sprinkled with shredded coconut) or sauteed veggies.

Ingredients

    Dried Mung Beans (whole or split) - 1 cup
    Turmeric - 0.5 tsp
    Salt - 0.5 tsp
    Garlic - 2 cloves, mashed
    Coconut (frozen, shredded) - 0.5 cup
    Cumin (powdered) - 1 tsp
    Water - 2 to 4 cups

Directions

- Bring to a boil the mung beans, turmeric and salt in 2 cups of water.

- Turn the heat to medium and let the beans cook until soft (approximately 15 to 20 more minutes), adding more water as needed. You want a thick, soft stew.

- Add in the mashed garlic, frozen shredded coconut and powdered cumin. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

- Let it cook on low heat for another 5 minutes, to allow the flavours to blend in, and to allow the frozen coconut to mix in properly.

- Serve hot with rice and any Indian curries you've got lying around. :)

- Makes 6 half-cup servings or more, depending on how much water was added.
