The combo is best...infact even better with milagu kuzhambu! Usually I make it just with toor dhal ...hv never tried with moong dhal combo and garlic is new too!

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.

Chitra said...

Thank u so much for the feedback.I have updated the post as u mentioned :)

dewdrops said...
