Beans Paruppu Usli!

Beans Paruppu Usli is very healthy and nice sidedish combi for sambar rice, vatha kolambu and Mor kolambu. It is popular in Tamilnadu.

Beans/French beans - 1/2 kg
Kadalai Paruppu/Channa Dal - 1 cup
Tavaram Paruppu/Toor dal - 1/2 cup
Dry Red Chilli - 2nos(Adjust as per your spice taste)
Curry leaves - few
Oil - 1/2 cup
Mustard -  1/2 tspn
Jeera - a pinch
Asafotida/hing - a pinch
Turmeric - 1/4 tspn
Coconut oil - 1 tspn(optional)

Preparation Method
Wash and soak the dals in water for 2 hours. 
Cut the ends and chop beans into small pieces. Pressure cook with little water, salt and turmeric for 2 whistles.
Grind the dals with chilli to a coarse paste in a mixie or blender.
Heat a kadai, add oil, mustard wait till it pops, then add jeera, hing, curry leaves. saute for a min.
Add the grounded dal mix and cook well until it changes the colour. If required add little oil.
Add the steamed beans without water and mix well. Adjust salt..
Let it cook for few mins. Off the stove. Add 1 tspn coconut oil and mix for flavour.

Beans Paruppu Usli is ready to serve. Enjoy this with sambar rice, rasam rice, vatha kolambu, curd rice and Mor kolambu. I like to mix it with hot steamed rice. You can also eat hot as it is for tea time.
