Parupusli, name itself takes me to my Mom’s place. The whole house will be aromatic with her cooking. Its been long since i made usli. Got some fresh beans @ home so decided to make it today. Besides When i make usli i pack it as a Side-dish for the breakfast too. Saves My Time!!!!!!!!!!!!
2 cups chopped beans
1 cup of toor/tuvar dal
5-6nos red chillies
one tight fist curry leaves
a pinch of hing
3-4 tbsp oil (Be generoussssssssssssss)
1-1/2 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of turmeric
Add some oil, if necessary.
It takes about 5-6 minutes for the tuvar mixture to cook. Well cooked usli has no moisture/water, has a crumbled texture.
you can make parupusli using Fresh Methi leaves, Banana Flower, Cabbage and even Bitter gourd.
