BEANS PARUPPU USILI/  PARUPPU USILI CURRY/ பீன்ஸ் பருப்பு உசிலி/ BEANS DHAL FRY

Parupu usili is one of a very popular side dish recipe in tamil nadu. We use dhals along with the vegetables such as beans, kothavarangaai(cluster beans), banana flower etc.,
The dhals used may differ, we generally use channa dhal and moong dhal. Some may use thoor dhal too. Or we can combinely use all the three dhals also.
In this recipe I have used green beans. You can use any of the vegetables in the below list.
  • French beans,
  • Cluster beans,
  • Banana flower,
  • Broad beans.

Please tell me in comments if I missed out any veggies which are suitable for paruppu usili.
The procedure for using all the above vegetables are same. Cook the finely chopped veggies with salt and turmeric. Then follow the same as given in the detailed recipe below.
And one more thing I want to mention here. Most of the people will steam cook the ground dhal mixture, then crumble it and then will add with the cooked veggies.
But we usually wont do like that. We grind the dhal into coarse with out adding water and then saute directly in little oil along with tempering. We like this way because the dhals will be crisp and also will be cooked easily, and obviusly so less time consuming and easy.
If you want you can steam cook and use. But am sure this way will also be so tasty than that.
And one more thing, the amount of dhal I purely optional. Why am mentioning this is, some may use lot of dhals and less veggies and vice versa. Here I have used both almost in same quatity.
Not but not lease this paruppu usili will goes perfectly with sambhar rice, mor kuzhambu and even vatha kuzhabu. It will not be so picy and definetly tastes amazing than our regular vegetable frys(poriyals).
