Arisi Parupu Sadam from Kongunadu cuisine, one that brings a lotta childhood memories .. sunday specials wen i was kid at home and after a long time something from my dad’s kitchen.. this easy to make recipe is yummy and very healthy for growing kids.. its almost the same as dal rice but a bit more spicier and tastier…anyone can try it out and not go wrong in it.. it def has an extra zing to it that a normal parupu sadam doesnt have… here is it from my dad’s kitchen..
