pappad-dal-gravy

Hi friends, here is the simple and healthy lentil/paruppu kootu with add of appalam in it. Its called as Appala Kootu or Papad dal gravy. It is Tamil Cuisine, which is loaded of proteins and carbohydrate. Potatoes give unique taste to the kootu and have to use plain urad dal papads, not masala papads…
