Papaya Mulakushyam

Mulakushyam/Moloshyam is healthy lentil  and vegetable curry that is served over rice. Here I have used green papaya/kapplanga but you can use other vegetables like pumpkin,cucumber,ash gourd, drumsticks or a combination of vegetables. This is a simple version of the mulakushyam. There is another version were we add coconut paste. I got this recipe from my friend Urmila of Good Eats Corner Thanks Urmila for this quick and yummy recipe.

Green papaya/kapplanga - cubes half of a medium papaya
Mong dal/Toor dal- 3/4 cup
Tomato- 2 small
Green chilly-1
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Coconut oil- 2 tsp

Pressure cook lentil or parippu along with tomato,turmeric powder and green chilly. If you are using mung dal or cheru parippu slightly dry roast it before cooking.When the dal is cooked slightly mash it and keep aside.
Cook papaya with 1/2 cup of water, salt and chilly powder. When the vegetable is cooked add the cooked dal and pepper powder. Simmer in medium heat for about two to three minutes. Take off from the stove and add fresh curry leaves and coconut oil.  Serve with rice.
