Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Lentils such as pigeon pea and tur dal are a powerhouse of nutrition. They are particularly rich in dietary fiber, lean protein, folate, and iron. Apart from that, they are also considered to be a good source of potassium, calcium, zinc, niacin and vitamin K. Parippu is hence a wonderful recipe packed with nutrients that can be easily relished during Onam.


  • Split pigeon pea or Toor Dal - ½ cup
  • Shallots or pearl onions finely sliced - 2-3 no.
  • Garlic clove; finely chopped - 1
  • Ginger, finely chopped - ¼ tsp 
  • Green chillies, slit lengthwise - 1no.
  • Oil - ½ tsp
  • Curry leaves, crushed between the palms to enhance flavour - 2 spring
  • Water - 1 or 2 cups

Step 1 To begin making the Sadya Parippu, Pressure cook the split pigeon pea or toor dal in two cups of water along with the pearl onions, garlic, ginger, green chillies, a few curry leaves, a pinch of salt.  Step 2 Once the pressure is released from the cooker mash the toor dal lightly with a masher.  Step 3 Now, add in the oil and the curry leaves to the dal. Cover this and simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Step 4 Serve the hot Sadya Parippu with brown rice. Step 5 This dish uses split pigeon peas, which do not require much water for cooking.  Step 6 On the other hand, if you are using green gram lentils or moong dal, make sure you add at least 1 and 1/2 cups of water for ½ cup of the lentils, to ensure the lentils are cooked well and are also the right consistency. Step 7 Adding garlic and pearl onions is important but not mandatory. Parippu prepared for Sadya can make do without these ingredients. Step 8 The dish needs to be of semi-thick consistency. Therefore adjust the cooking accordingly. Step 9 Ash gourd or yellow cucumber cubes can also be added in the dal before cooking or in the cooked dal. These vegetables make the dish nutritious and healthy.
