Paruppu Thuvaiyal (Lentil Chutney)

Hi friends hope you are all doing great. Today post is about simple chutney recipe for rice. This is mostly served as side dish for rice. When you are short of much vegetables or  don' t have time to make curry/ poriyal for rice .....then this is an excellent choice. This chutney goes very well with variety rice too. I love to have this with rasam rice or even you can have with plain white rice.
