Beans Paruppu Usili (Lentil Crumble)

Paruppu usili is a dish that combines greens/veggies with crumbled lentils. And as it has hardly any oil, it’s a nice combi – deliciously healthy. I love the taste of the crumbled lentils (can be one or a combi of different lentils) … It can be combined with French beans, long beans, cluster beans, capsicum, carrots, cabbage, etc etc … With the expanding/evolving cuisines, it can even be made even with asparagus, broccoli and the likes.


I made these with Bengal gram and green beans. Click here for the recipe.
