Vellarikka Parippu Curry (Cucumber Dal Curry Kerala Style)

What was your favorite curry during your childhood days? In my case it was Vellarika parippu curry. My Mother says, we used to keep even chicken curry aside and finish this curry first. My husband got cucumber from the Indian shop here. I immediately remembered about this, called up my Mum and took the recipe. Give it a try, you will surely like it 🙂
