  27. Hi Chitra,
    I tried the paruppu thogayal it came out nice. Small request can you please give spoon measurements for the dhals along with the 1/8 cup etc. The spice level I felt 1 teaspoon of pepper was high especially for kids it would be nice if you can give a range of 1/2 to 1tsp. This will help people like me. Thank you.
