CORIANDER LEAVES PARUPPU USILI(KOTHAMALLI PARUPPU USILI/கொத்தமல்லி இலை பருப்பு உசிலி )

Coriander paruppu usilis such an easy recipe goes very well with white rice along with sambhar or puli kuzhambu or mor kuzhambu. It is one of a traditional south Indian recipe prepared using the dhals and some particular vegetables. Some of the vegetables that suits perfectly for this parupu usili are French beans, cluster beans,banana flower capsicum.


Already i have posted the recipe for the beans paruppu usili here in my blog. Please check the below link if you are interested. 



The method will be almost same for the kothavarangaai(cluster beans) and French beans. For both we need to cook in water or steam cook  the vegetables and then add to the cooked dhal mixture.
Infact some may steam cook the dhals first and then will add that to the tempering. But i prefer the direct cooking of the dhals, because i feel it gives very nice taste, texture and flavour to the usili.

Ok coming to the point , now what’s the need for the separate post for the coriander paruppu usili???
Is it different from the beans paruppu usili??

Yes., but not much. Here no need to cook the coriander leaves in advance.
once more thing is i have used ore amount of dhals here than the other vegetable usili, because after cooking the leaves will shrink and the yielding will be less.

Capsicum paruppu usili:
And for the capsicum paruppu usili also no need to steam cook or boil the chopped capsicum in advance.
Just sauté the finely chopped capsicum and sauté it for few minutes, just few minutes, then add to the sautéed dhal mixture.

AUTHOR: KUZHALIS SAMAIYALARAI
RECIPE TYPE: SIDE DISH
CUISINE: SOUTH INDIAN
SERVES:   3 PERSONS

INGREDIENTS:
                                    1 1/2 cup tightly packed chopped coriander leaves
                                    ½ cup channa dhal
                                    ½ cup moong dhal
                                    Water as needed
                                    3 red chillies
                                    Salt as needed(approx. ½ tsp)
                                    ¼ tsp asafetida
                        To temper
                                    2 tablespoon oil
                                    ½ tsp mustard seeds
                                     

PREPARATION:
Soak the dhals together in water for minimum 2 hours.
Finely chop the coriander leaves and keep it ready.

METHOD:
Drain the water from the dhals completely.
Grind the dhals, in to coarse paste with out adding water along with red chillies, asafetida and salt.
Keep it aside.
In a heavy bottomed kadai/non stick pan add the oil and let it heat.
Then add the mustard seeds and allow it to splutter.
Then add the ground paste into the pan and sauté. The flame should be medium flame.
Continuously sauté the dhal mixture in medium heat till it becomes dry and cooked. This step will take around 3 to 5 minutes.
Once the dhal is cooked and looks partially crumbled, add the chopped coriander leaves.
Sauté till the coriander leaves gets cooked and mixed properly with the dhal mixture.
Remove from fire once the usili reached the consistency as per your wish. Yes, if you want the usili to be so crisp and dry sauté it for more time in low medium heat.

NOTES:
  • If you don’t have much time in hand, just soak the dhals in hot water for around 30 minutes and proceed.
  • Grind the dhals with out water is very important to reduce the cooking time and good textured usili.
  • Don’t grind the dhal as smooth, it should be coarse.
  • It is always good to use iron pan to cook the usili which roasts the dhal very nicely.
  • Here for coriander usili I have used little more amount of dhal than the other vegetable usilis, to get good amount of usili and nice taste.
