A generic term in Tamil, paruppu usually signifies cooked lentils. This creamy-tasting dal reminds me of my childhood days, when my grandmother would feed me sweet split yellow pigeon peas with yogurt-smothered rice. I have used whole green lentils in this recipe to capture her flavors—in every mouthful. Serve it with the same yogurt rice, Tayyar shaadum, for a winning and comforting combination.
