"Most Srilankan dishes are accompanied by a lentil curry. Parippu is comparable to Indian dhal curries, yet distinctly different in taste. It goes well as a side dish with meat or fish curry, or just mixed with rice and veggies as a quick lunch or dinner. If you prefer a version with less calories, you can omit the tempering, or add the curry leaves and garlic during step 2."
