Cherupayar Ularthiyathu /Stirfried Green gram

  1. Green gram - 2 cups soaked in water and pressure cooked for one whistle(it should not get overcooked. Mine got overcooked and a bit mushy)
  2. Shallots - 5 crushed
  3. Dry red chillies - 5 crushed
  4. Garlic - 4 cloves crushed
  5. curry leaves - 1 spring
  6. Coarsely crushed Black pepper - 1/4 th tsp
  7. Oil - 3 tbsp
  8. Mustard seeds - 1/2 th tsp


Heat oil in a frying pan and splutter the mustard seeds. Add in the curry leaves,crushed garlic,shallots and dry red chillies and saute until it turns light brown. Add in the cooked green gram (there should not be any water in it) and saute until the flavours blend.Add in cracked black pepper to taste. It tastes better if you fry it on a low flame for 10 minutes. Best served with Kanji and Chammanthi .
