Beans Usili

Beans and Pasiparuppu usili

                                                      This one is part of  tamil new year thali.Bean usili is one of the fav side dish at home,crunchy and aromatic poriyal..I like the microwave method  to make quick and best usili....Its a no onion and no garlic recipe,one can enjoy during vrata days too :)

Beans,chopped-250 gms
Moong dal-100 gms
Asofoedia-half tsp
Turmeric powder-half tsp
Salt to taste

1.Dry roast the dal for 5-7 minutes with medium flame  in a tawa
2.Add 2 cups of water in a microwave safe bowl,dal and the rest of ingredients
3.Close the bowl with a lid and microwave it for 10 minutes in high,stir inbetween once 

Make sure the dal is not over cooked and the beans...The color is also retained ,since it is cooked in microwave with the close bowl....
