Beans Paruppu Usli Powder

my take on beans parupu usiyal 


beans paruppu usiyal


This recipe takes inspiration from Chitra Balachander's beans parupu usiyal. The moment I tried this recipe, I fell in love with this simple, soul-pleasing beans recipe from south India.

Try it once and you will never be fed up with this healthy recipe.

I have made this recipe umpteen times ever since with slight variations. After my first attempt, I have started including chana dal along with tuvar dal - both equal quantities. I have also added fresh coconut and ginger to the recipe.


I always use 1 onion for tempering this recipe along with rai, urad dal, chana dal. Adding onion enhances the taste of this recipe and takes it to another level.

My main ingredients for the recipe are:
1/2 cup- tuvar dal/arhar dal
1/2 cup- chana dal
1/4-1/2 cup- fresh coconut
salt, ginger, turmeric

For tempering :

mustard seeds
urad dal
curry leaves
1 onion
salt

Today, I tried to make tikkis or cutlets with this recipe. These tasted divine - nobody can tell what ingredients you have used.

Chitra Vishwanathan/Chitvish/CV's paruppu usli powder
1/2 cup tuar dal or pigeon peas
 1/2 cup channa dal

1/2 tsp hing (asafetida)

Procedure to make paruppu usli powder

Dry roast chillies and then add hing.

Chitvish's paruppu usli powder is ready for use!

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
