Dal Curry / Paruppu Kulambu is a very popular dish is all wedding lunches and it is also extremely healthy and nutritious and rich in protein.This is quick and very easy to make I always make this whenever I dont have enough time to Cook or when i am bored. Dal with potato fry is a stunning combination with rice and also goes excellent with Chapathi.
