Cherupayar Curd Curry is an awesome gravy dish that goes very well with cooked rice and chappati. Relishing the spicy flavored and slightly tangy dish is something worth mentioning that you will really love. Green gram dishes are comfort dishes that suits your tummy well. There are a lot many lip smacking dishes with Cherupayar in Kerala Cuisine and Cherupayar Thayir Koottaan is one such healthy innovative dish. I love this dish and my family especially my kids have started eating green gram. What makes Cherupayar Curd Curry unique and special is the addition of curd. Curd provides a tangy flavor to the dish and it tastes great with chaappati. In my opinion this is the best curry dish for hot summers. Curds cool your body and green gram is rich in protein, very healthy for your body. You can savor green gram or cherupayar daily, it is very good for your body.

Another specialty of Cherupayar Thayir Koottaan is that you break the green gram slightly in a mixer. That makes cooking green gram faster. Again you save much of your time.
