Beans Paruppu Usili (Green Beans and Chana Dal Curry) - for Blog Hop

Hello Friends,


Another week of Blog Hop, love it, get to try different blogs and different recipes. Please check out what all this is about.


This got I am paried with wonderful Laxmi of Samyal Diary. A great blog and wonderful collection of recipes. I want to try many, but I wanted to go authentic and so opted for this delicacy, which I had eaten, but never prepared at home. This is the famous dish of Tamil Cuisine called Beans Paruppu Usili.


When I was browsing through her recipes, I knew right away that this is what I wanted to try. A very easy to make recipe and tastes wonderful. I loved the ground dal and beans combination very much.


Beans Paruppu Usili (Green Beans and Chana Dal Curry)
Ingredients
Green Beans - 2 cups, chopped to desired shapre, smaller the better
Onion - 1/2 cup, finely chopped
Chana Dal (Split Chickpea Bean) - 1/4 cup

Cumin - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - a few leaves

  • Wash and soak chana dal for 1 hour.
  • After an hour, grind drained chana dal with dry red chili and cumin to a coarse paste by adding very little water.
  • Take a non stick pan and add oil.
  • Once oil is hot, add mustard seeds and curry leaves and let seeds splutter.
  • Add onion and let them fry till light brown.
