Kale Paruppu Masiyal | Kale Kadaiyal | Kale Dal Curry

Kale Paruppu Masiyal, a delicious and healthy curry made from the kale leaves, dals and indian spices. Kale is one of the greens which i got introduced when we were in US. Other than baked kale chips and kale thogayal, this masiyal is our favorite for sometime now. 

Also i love to experiment western veggie in indian cooking(like this masiyal) and indian veggie in western cooking(like coriander pesto in pasta/pizza). Sometimes it didn't work out but don't worry here i'm only sharing the recipe which we like and made it repeatedly in my kitchen, so you can trust the recipe and try it yourself :-). 

Now coming back to recipe, unlike other greens, kale doesn't get reduced in quantities when it's cooked, even 1/2 bunch of kale greens would be enough for this masiyal to feed 4 adults well. 

If you haven't tried this way of making kale greens, do give it a try, it tastes awesome with both rice and rotis. ST likes to take this curry as side dish for roti in his lunch box. Now let's check out the recipe for this kale paruppu masiyal.
