ABOUT Mudda pappu RECIPE

Mudda in Telugu means a lump. This is the simplest dal that can ever be prepared, it can be mixed directly with rice or mixed as a supplement along with various kinds of rasam, charu, pacchi pulusu varieties. In rural Telangana region, jowar rotis and white rice are eaten with mudda pappu and pacchi pulusu. When mixed with rice, a dash of ghee/white butter enhances the taste exponentially.
