Paruppu Usili is the most familiar Brahmin or Iyengar recipe . This can be made by mixing the vegetables and toor dal crumbled mixture. Usally this is made by vegetables like cluster beans,broad beans,plantain flower,french beans , mixing of carrot beans etc... This goes well with kuzhambu, rasam , vethakuzhabu and many more. Here comes the steps to make beans paruppu usili


Preparation Time:15 mints|Cooking Time:30 mints| Serves:3




Toor Dal - 1/3 cup

Channa dal - 1 tbspn

Red Chili -1

Beans - 15 to 20

Turmeric - 1tspn

Salt - 1tbspn

1. Take both dal together and soak minimum for an hour. Then drain the water and add the dal to the blender along with the red chili,hing,turmeric and salt(1/2tbspn) and blend it to a coarse paste. Don't add water while grinding.


2.Steam the Grinded dal mixture . You can use any method of steaming. I done in my pressure cooker without putting vessel. Once the steaming is done allow the mixture to cool and if u scramble the dal in hands or put it in blender and whip once u ll get a crumble texture.


3. Chop the beans evenly and put it in a pan with water,salt,turmeric and hing. Add only half salt as we cooked dal with salt. Bring it to boil and allow it to cook well.In a pan heat oil and temper it with mustard seeds,urad dal,Curry leaves,Beans,Dal and mix well. Then turn off the stove.


Serve the paruppu usili with meals.
