Ullikaadalu-Senagapappu-Kobbari Kura

Ullikaadalu-Senagapappu-Kobbari Kura (Spring Onion- Chanadal- coconut stirfry)
My second recipe for this week under Meal Idea is a simple side dish for rice and rasam or rice and any type of pulusu( vegetables cooked with tamarind gravy). I usually make this side dish when ever I don't have any vegetables in hand. There are few variations in this curry,usually this curry is made with only chana dal and grated fresh coconut. but you can add chopped vegetables like finely chopped beans, spring onion, carrot or cabbage. Personally I don't like to add all those vegetables other then spring onion and fresh methi leaves, any way that's my choice.
so lets check the recipe....

Never tried adding green onions to the koora. I guess it adds another flavor layer.
