Cluster Beans (Kothavarangai) Usili Method 2

I love Usili, This method is easy to do and doesn't required steaming of Dhal paste. This is a high protein poriyal.


Cluster Beans (Cut into 2" thin pieces lengthwise) - 1 big bowl
Thuvar dal – 1/2 cup

Bengal gram dal – 1/2 cup

Red chillies – 2 to 3 Nos
Cumin Seeds - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon
A pinch of asafetida
Oil – 2 tablespoons
Mustard – 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves few
Salt - 1 teaspoon or as per taste

Soak both the dals for two hours. Drain the water and grind along with chillies,Cumin seeds, asafetida, pinch of turmeric powder and salt to a coarse paste (like vadai dough). 
In a vessel put the beans and salt and sprinkle little water. Mix well. Cook on medium flame till it is cooked soft. Keep it aside.
In another kadai put the remaining oil. When it is hot add mustard. When it pops up add curry pasteleaves and then add grinded dhal and fry for a 10 mins approximately and spread the dhal paste and make to small pieces by stirring it regularly. 

When it is cooked and more crispy add cooked beans and mix well. 
Keep it on low flame for few more minutes.  Keep it on the stove for one more minute and remove.
