Once I made paruppusili with broccoli – outtasight! Will post pics the next time I make that!
1 cup of Thuvar dal/ thoran paruppu/ bengal gram
2 green chillies
2 red chillies
1/2 cup of grated coconut
2 lbs of fresh beans
Soak the dal and chillies for couple of hours and grind coarsely -like for vadai in a food processor – drain out the water from the soaking before grinding.
Once ground, add the salt and mix in really well
Grease your idli plates and steam cook like idlis for about 12-13 minutes
FOR THE BEANS
Cut and steam cook beans
Thadka or Tmeper with
A pinch of asafoetida
2 Whole red chillies
1/2 teaspoon of mustard seeds small black)
Once it the usili idlis are fairly cool, get our your cheese grater and rub the idli against it so it crumbles into small florets.
Slightly dry roast the grated coconut in a small pan and top it on to the usili mixture and stir in.
Add to the beans and mix well
