Carrot Paasi Paruppu is very tasty curry. Its simple and easy to prepare.

Paasi Paruppu (Siru Paruppu/Split green gram/Moong Dal)- 1 cup
Cooking oil - 2 tspns

Peringayam(Asafotida/Hing) - 2pinches
Karuvepillai(Curry leaves/Kari Patha) - few

Preparation Method
Soak Paasi Paruppu for half n hour and pressure cook for 1 or 2whistles in cooker or cook directly in vessel. (If cooked in vessel keep an eye it will overflow so keep stirring)
Wash, remove skin and chop carrots into small pieces.

In a Kadai, put oil mustard Kadagu wait till it splutters. Then add Peringayam, Uzhatam Paruppu/Kadalai Paruppu, Karuvepillai wait till its brown. Now add carrots, manjal with little water and cook. When its half cooked add salt stir occasionally.

Add paasi paruppu and mix well. Cook for few minutes till all mixes well.

Carrot Passi Paruppu Curry is ready to serve. This is a good side dish for chapathi or to mix with rice.

I do this sort of curry, but will add directly with veggies and cook along, pressure cooking dals and adding to curries seems like a wonderful idea..Will try soon, congrats on ur awards..

Dear Rekha, Lubna, Sarah and Viki for your comments...

Dear Priya,
You can do that kind also but vege may overcook but dal may not cook properly...
