How to Make Basic Paruppu Usili

  • Cut beans into very small cubes (as finely as you can) and cook it with salt and haldi.
  • Once it is cooked, drain all the water and keep aside.
  • Soak toor dal for about 2 hours and grind it coarsely with hing, salt and red chillies (depends on your palate).
  • Take oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.
  • Once they splutter, add curry leaves and then put the ground toor dal mix.
  • Keep on very low flame and cover so that the mix gets cooked.
  • After five minutes, saute well and cover again.
  • Repeat this process a couple until the dal is cooked.
  • You will know that it is cooked when the mix does not stick to the ladle.
  • Squeeze the water out of the cooked beans and mix it along with the toor dal mix and stir well so that both are blended.
  • It goes very well with sambar rice or rasam rice.
