Green Moong Dal Curry for Chapathi & Roti | Pachai Payaru Curry

Green Moong Dal Curry, a delicious, healthy and easy to make curry for chapathi & roti. After marriage only, i got introduced to this curry by my hubby, honestly i didn't like this curry much initially but at the same didn't hate it too, it was kind of ok to me at that time because before marriage i was so used to coconut based curries like kurma and i hadn't have developed the taste for any other curries. Actually living aboard and limited availability of fresh indian coconut in the area where we lived and all gave me opportunity to explore other curries. And now, on daily basis i have prepared curries without coconut and relish it without any complaint.     
With all being said, now this green moong dal curry is one of my favorite to have it as side dish for chapathi and roti. Green moong dal blends well with the spices and yields tasty and creamy curry without any cream. If you haven't tried this curry before, do give it a try, it's taste so good!!
