Gorikai (in Kannada) parupu usli is a typical Brahmin/Iyengar recipe I think so, because I never had this before wedding. Not even until recently. Now days I try to balance the cooking between our types of cooking, husbands side cooking, sometimes fusion of both. My MIL just gave an idea of the recipe, it’s very easy and simple recipe, I have just done small changes, but it does not affect original taste of the recipe.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes.
Idle Time: NIL
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Serves : 3 to 4
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
2 cups chopped Cluster beans (cut inch 1 inch piece)
2 tbsp – Tool dal
2 tbsp – channa dal
10 to 15 – badgi chilies
4 tbsp – grated coconut
2 tsp – oil
1 pinch – Hing/asafoetida
1 tsp – mustard seeds
1 tsp – turmeric
1 tsp- salt
1 spring – curry leaves
HOW TO MAKE
In a bowl soak dals and chillies, soak at least 1 hour.
Cook the cluster beans with salt, once cooked keep aside.
Now grind the soaked dal and chilly, grind it coarsely keep aside.
In a pan add oil, add mustard seeds once its splutters, add hing, turmeric, curry leaves and mix well. Now the grind paste mix well, add some salt. Let it cook for 5 minutes.
Once the dal is cooked, add the cluster beans let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes so that the dal paste and cluster beans are mixed well. Once it’s cooked its ready to serve.
This recipe can be made with beans also, maybe other veggies I am not sure.
The dal paste can be roasted until it becomes crisp too and then the cluster beans can be added.
I have added 2 types of chilies for more spiciness,the other is mankatti red chilly.
you can add or minus chilies, according to spice levels.
