Cherupayar Thoran (green Gram Stir Fry With Coconut)
A simple preparation of green gram that we prepare on Good Friday to break our fast. This stir fry is had with rice gruel, curd and chutney. Since the chutney and this stir fry share common ingredients, it makes it easy to cook on Good Friday and we try to keep the meal simple. Unlike the normal stir fry this version is non spicy with the addition of the grated coconut. Mostly churches in Kerala serve this on the afternoon of Good Friday to their parishioners who fast the whole day.
