Beans Paruppu Usili.



Ingredients
Beans (finely chopped)-250gms
Onion small( sliced)-1
Red chilly powder/Paprika powder-1tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Hing/Asafetida-pinch
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Chana dal/Split Chick peas-handful
Toor dal/ Split Pigeon peas-handful
Dried red chilly-4
Garlic cloves-2
Oil-2tbsp

Method
Wash and soak the chana dal and toor dal. Grind both dals in mixer to a coarse paste along with dried red chilly and garlic cloves. To the coarsely ground dals add 1tbsp oil and required salt( since salt is also added to the beans, i prefer adding less salt to the dals). Add the ground dal paste to a steam pan and steam for at least 10 mins. Once the dal is cooked allow to cool and crumble it with fingers. Next heat oil in a pan, when hot add the mustard seeds. When mustard seeds crackles add the chopped onion and saute until onion turns pink. Now add the chopped beans and stir fry for few mins. Season the beans with red chilly powder, turmeric powder, asafetida and salt. Sprinkle little water on the beans, cover and cook until 3/4th done. Now remove the lid and add the crumbled dals. Stir fry the bean and dal mixture until dry. Serve hot with steamed Rice or Roti.

No false comment passing this time.

This looks really delicious and I memorised the recipe and I will prepare it. I shifted to a new house and as you know the shifting process is a mess which prohibited me from blogging, surfing or cooking. I have to quickly start with the normal life again.

The recipe where the dals are grinded and then cooked is new to me. Hey one question... Do we need to add water after the dals are added to sauted onion and chopped beans?

Thank you Abhi, Sushma, Prathiba, Priya, Shama, Bala, Vrinda, Nyona and Padma for your encouraging comments:)

Hi abhi, i know how messy it gets while shifting to a new home, hope u like the place and get more friends in neighborhood....

As i said sprinkle enough water on the sauted beans and onions, cover the pan and cook the beans for about 5 mins. Once the beans are cooked and dry, finally add the steamed dals to the cooked beans and give a final stir.

Once the steamed dal is added to the beans, do not add water. As the mixture of dals and beans will become soggy.

Hope i'm making clear.....
