About Paruppu Usili Recipe
Much of what I have witnessed of the food cooked by my grand mother, I have always felt that it was made with a pure mind and heart and that was applicable to the simple tea she made.Her hands were what we could say “gifted” and she made a stir fry or curry taste ethereal!One of her daily cooking recipes I always loved and do so is the versatile Paruppu Usili.”Paruppu” means “Lentil” and Usili means “partly mashed and stir fried” like Scrambled Eggs.Here we are “scrambling” lentil along with any kind of beans – I used Cluster Beans also called Guar Phalli in Hindi and Kothavarakai in Tamil!This recipe is very healthy.Why because: 1.We use Beans which are a source of protein and millions of benefits! 2.We use Lentils again for their protein. 3.This delicious recipe can be paired with a Sambar – Rice or Roti for a full meal!
