Cluster beans paruppu usili recipe | Kothavarangai paruppu usili

Kothavarangai Paruppu usili

I love this kothavarangai paruppu usili for its texture. I make it very rarely,dont know the reason. I eat the veggi that I hate too,if its made in the form of usili. So here is the way I make. I have cut the cluster beans long, but you can also chop it finely as shown in below picture:


Cluster beans paruppu usili recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 2 Hour soaking time    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients

Cluster beans -  1/4 kg 

Turmeric -  A pinch 

Coconut,grated(optional) -  4 tblsp 

Salt -  As needed 


To grind

Channa dal+toor dal(soaked for atleast an hour) - 1/4+1/4 cup

green/red chillies - 3-4nos.

Asafoetida - A generous pinch

Jeera - 1 tsp


To Temper

Oil - 1 tsp

Mustard - 1 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method:

  1. Cut cluster beans into desired length and cook till soft with salt and turmeric.
  2. cookingcooked
  3. Grind chilli,asafoetida,salt and jeera first into a coarse mixture,then add the soaked dal and grind coarsely.(Make sure u add no water while grinding).
  4. dalafter grinding
  5. Grease the idly plates with oil and steam the ground mixture for 5-6 minutes. (fill the mixture in the idly plates loosely).Crumble the steamed dal and keep it aside.
  6. steamingCrumbled
  7. Heat a pan with oil and temper it with mustard and curry leaves. Add the cooked cluster beans and fry for a  minute and then add the crumbled dal and mix well.
  8. Tadkaadd beans
  9. After a 2 minutes,add coconut if desired(I dint add) and stir well for a minute.
  10. add dalfry well

Notes:

  • While grinding the dal,drain water completely and make sure there is no water and grind coarsely.Also don’t pat the ground dal in the idly plate, just cook in a sprinkled way. This is to make the crumbling of the cooked dal easily. Otherwise this process will be time consuming and painful…
  • You can use only one variety of dal or change the ratio too.
  • You can finely chop the cluster beans too. 

Thats it, the usili is ready,serve as accompaniment for rice. ( We prefer usili with more kuzhambu)

  12. This is a regular in my kitchen too.., this is H's favourite, he loves them with Bittergourd, I have to make at least from one bittergourd every week!, As I use dhals in little quantity for one bittergourd, I directly cook them in the wok!, adding water to it, so I don't have to use too much oil, My MIL cooked the dals totally in oil :), The kannadigas make this usli as you have made, very HEALTHY and delicious! Lovely click too...

  35. I am just like you Raks. I can eat beans and asparagus only in usili. I think the coarse texture of dhal compliments with the veggie and makes it tastier. And I absolutely love the idea of using cluster beans, go to try that.

  53. thank you for the recipe:) the usili came out well but i did not read your `notes so it was really painful and time consuming to crumble the dal mixture. I had to grind in the mixie finally, but the taste was very good :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Raks kitchen recipees are very good.
    Usuli curry can be made from cabbage,capsicum,flower,beans,avarakai,each has a different taste.
