BEANS PARRUPU USILI

I am back again with parrupu usili. Again this is a traditional dish  and very good accompaniment for morkulambhu and vatha kulambhu.

Before i got married,i eat parrupu usili as a accompaniment to rice.After marriage everybody in my hubby’s place they mix usili with hot rice and keep morkulambhu for accompaniment.

The very first time when i saw this it was strange to me and after trying that combo,it was good.

My MIL makes this very nicely and i learnt this from her. she adds more of channa dal and little of toor dal,to make the usili  like parrupu podi and mix with rice.

Here comes the recipe for beans usili.

Regarding the veggies to be added in usili,it is absolutely your choice.We can add beans, carrot,valaipoo,cluster beans,cabbage,broadbeans. My hubby’s grandma used to say that it can be made with onions and ladies finger too.But i never tried using all that.

Picture Updated:

usili

INGREDIENTS:

BEANS 1 CUP(CUT INTO SMALL PIECES)
CHANNA DAL 1 CUP

REDCHILLIES 4-5
HING 1/4 TSP
BEANS 1 CUP(CHOPPED)
MUSTARD 1/4 TSP

 usili

Soak channa dal and toor dal for 2 hrs or if you are making this in weekdays for lunch box and going to make in the morning,soak it overnight and keep it in the fridge.

Drain the water and grind it in the mixie  along with hing ,redchilles ,curryleavesand salt,without adding water to it. Grease an idli plate and steam this ground paste for 7 – 10 mins.

  31. when making Keerai , beans or other green veges how to retain the green color. Usually it turns greyish when it gets cooked. Any tips.

    1. Normally to retain the color add 1 tsp of sugar to the green curry so that it will retain the color
