Thur dal Rice (Thuvaram Paruppu Sadham)

An age old traditional recipe of Tirunelveli. I can say authentically that this is a complete balanced main course  with all essential nutrients. It finds place in the menu atleast once in a month especially on Sundays. It gives an exotic taste when you relish with Avial and crisps....
