easy-no-vegetable-poricha-kuzhambu recipe
     I have mentioned about this easy poricha kuzhambu in my murungakkai poricha kuzhambu recipe. This is also called ‘Rathri poricha kuzhambu’ as its made in the night time for dinner. My grandfather (mom’s/ FIL’s dad) is a great fan of this. Even at my in-law’s place, every one likes this.  Its simple and easy to make and easily digestible as it has only moong dal. My grandfather used to come back home hungry and ask my grand mom to make this as quick fix for the dinner, as its his favorite  Aj also likes this one to my surprise. No wonder his grand sons and great grand son too likes the same as their grand fatherHappy.   This is more like the south Indian version of North Indian dal.

  3. Add pressure cooked mashed dal and boil until u get a thick homogeneous texture 4 – 5 minutes). Stir in between to avoid burnt bottom and adjust the water quantity if there is no water at all in the cooked dal.3-poricha-kuzhambu

Notes

    • Usually we collect the arisi mandi from the rice we are going to cook for that day and use it.
    • This recipe is supposed to be without any vegetables and any other complicated grinding process.
    • If not using arisi mandi you can use plain water too.

Serve with rice, topped with ghee, its perfect comfort food, easy to make when you have no vegetables in stock and you are in a hurry to cook.
