What's your favorite side dish for Nei Choru (Ghee rice)? Let me guess… it's a non veg dish, right?. Have you tried ghee rice with Parippu Curry (Dal Curry)? I've read in some books, that Dal and Ghee Rice combo is very common in Malabar side. That combo sounded a bit strange to me at first, since I always associated nei choru with non veg side dishes. But I happened to try this combo and I was pleasantly surprised! It paired so well, not to mention the added taste of pappad and some pickle on the side. It was a beautiful and satisfying meal.
This is the kind of dish that you can cook during a weekend for your family. It guarantees you a very special treat with not much effort. Sounds tempting, right?
I've given the simplest form of ghee rice recipe which I got from my friend Sheena. Thank you Sheena :)
