When it is Ramanavami my mom prepares vadaparuppu and if it is Tulsi pooja my mom prepare this…Only later I came to know Kosambari is aka Vadaparuppu.When we went to family treat I saw kosambari being displayed and my hubby had it as starter.Though I am not very fond of it I can make this for my entire family.A simple and very easy starter.
|Moong dal||2 tbsp|
|mustard seeds||1/2 tsp|
1.Cut green chilies into fine pieces.
2.Squeeze juice from lemon sans seeds.
3.Soak moong dal in water for 20 mins and completely drain water from it.
4.Take a bowl and add moong dal + salt and stir it well.
5.In a wok add oil and wait till it gets heated.Once it gets heated add mustard seeds and wait for it to splutter.Finally add green chilies and give a quick stir.Add this seasoning to the moong dal and mix well.
6.Finally add lemon juice to the moong dal and mix well.The moong dal kosambari/vadaparuppu would be ready.
1.You can finely chopped raw mango,grated carrot,grated cabbage and grated coconut to the kosambari and make it just an yummy starter.
