Beans Parippu Usili

Here is one of my other favorites from Dakshin by Chandra Padmanabhan-

1 cup toor dal or Masoor Dal; I used Masoor Dal
3 cups water
5 red chillies
Asafoetida Powder
1 lb Green Beans, finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric


2 tbsps oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 red chilli, halved
7-8 curry leaves
  • Soak the dal and the red chillies in water for about an hour
  • In the meanwhile, boil beans with salt and turmeric till tender/soft
  • Drain water and set aside
  • Drain the water from the dal and add salt and asafoetida
  • Blend it to a smooth paste
  • In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. To it, add chana dal, urad dal, cumin seeds,mustard seeds, red chilli and curry leaves
  • Once the seeds splutter, add the dal paste
  • Keeping the stove on low heat, stir the paste occasionally until the paste gets the texture of breadcrumbs and crisp.
  • Add the boiled beans and saute for 3 min.
  • Serve with rice
