Cherupayaru Olarthiyathu also called Cherupayaru Ulartthiyathu, Cherupayar Olarthiyathu, Cherupayar Olarthiyathu or Cherupayaru Olarthu refers to a dish from Kerala, India made from stir-fried cooked Cherupayaru or Moong/Mung Beans or Whole Green Gram.

The cooked Cherupayaru is stir-fried with onions, garlic, ginger, red chilies and various spices, such as turmeric powder, black Mustard (Kadugu) and of course Curry leaves

Cherupayaru Olarthiyathu is usually served with Puttu (steamed rice cake) or Kanji, rice porridge from Kerala.

Picture below of the Cherupayaru Olarthiyathu prepared by my friend in Allepey, Kerala, India which they served to me with Kanji.

Cherupayaru Olarthiyathu, I must say is very much the same as the Philippines Ginisang Munggo (sauteed Mung beans), except that in the Philippines, we do not use black Mustard seeds and Curry leaves to spice it up and we usually add vegetable leaves, such as Kamote (Sweet Potato tops), Malunggay or Ampalaya (Bitter Gourd) young leaves to it. (Please see article on Ginisang Munggo)
