Vegetable say beans cooked with tur dhall
Recipe of Paruppu Usili
|Curry Leaves||a few|
1. Soak tur dhall in water (enough to immerse) for 2 hrs. 2. Cook diced beans in water adding little salt to retain colour, until soft. Keep aside. 3. Grind soaked tur chall after draining the water, alongwith 6 red chillies and salt to a coarse paste, without adding any water. 3. In a non stick pan, add oil, put in mustard seed, one red chilly and curry leaves.Let mustard seeds splutter. Add hing. Put the ground dhall mixture and keep cooking on medium flame without burning the bottom. Keep adding oil from time to time. Dhall will become dry and get the texture of sand when well cooked and water content has evaporated. 4. Now add the cooked beans to the dhall and add salt to taste and mix well. 5. Take the dish off the stove. This can be a side dish to a thali. Will taste excellent when mixed in rice with ghee.
If non stick pan is not available, dhall which has been ground can be steamed and then cooked in an ordinary pan as stated.
