How to Make Mixed Paruppu Usili

  • Soak dals in water for about 1/2 hour.
  • Grind all ingredients (with salt) except the vegetable into a paste.
  • Steam the paste, like you would for idlis, and when it cools, crush it.
  • Cut the vegetables appropriately and cook with a pinch of salt.
  • In a pan, add the oil, mustard and asafoetida and when the mustard splutters, add urad dal and curry leaves.
  • When urad dal is light brown, add steamed dal mixture.
  • When the dal mix is free of lumps (break lumps with a spoon while on stove), add the cooked vegetable and fry it in low for a few minutes.
