In our area parippu is not an important dish in sadya ,but in northern kerala its one of the first and imp dish ..
Garlic is used in some region .. so Usually i won’t garlic in any of the sadya dishes ..But when i made this it came out well 🙂 ..
So garlic can be avoid if u want !!!
This is a semi medium thick curry .. will post katti parippu soon .. 🙂 So for this vishu try this simple curry .. Here my curry became it thick when cooled down ..;)
