Beans Paruppu Usili

Beans (finely chopped)-250gms
Onion small( sliced)-1
Red chilly powder/Paprika powder-1tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Chana dal/Split Chick peas-handful
Toor dal/ Split Pigeon peas-handful
Dried red chilly-4
Garlic cloves-2

Wash and soak the chana dal and toor dal. Grind both dals in mixer to a coarse paste along with dried red chilly and garlic cloves. To the coarsely ground dals add 1tbsp oil and required salt( since salt is also added to the beans, i prefer adding less salt to the dals). Add the ground dal paste to a steam pan and steam for at least 10 mins. Once the dal is cooked allow to cool and crumble it with fingers. Next heat oil in a pan, when hot add the mustard seeds. When mustard seeds crackles add the chopped onion and saute until onion turns pink. Now add the chopped beans and stir fry for few mins. Season the beans with red chilly powder, turmeric powder, asafetida and salt. Sprinkle little water on the beans, cover and cook until 3/4th done. Now remove the lid and add the crumbled dals. Stir fry the bean and dal mixture until dry. Serve hot with steamed Rice or Roti.
