Aval /Poha Paruppu Usili




Aval Paruppu Usili is one of the interesting dishes of Tamil Brahmin Cuisine.It contains no onions or garlic.
The first step is to make Usili made of grounded and steamed toor Dal.Then poha should be mixed with the usili/dal mixture

Ive blogged about Beans paruppu usili long back.The procedure is the same except we have to substitute Poha for Beans.


Ingredients :

Extra Thick Poha/Aval - 1 cup

Mustard seeds - 1tsp

Curry leaves - a few sprigs

Sesame oil - 2tbsp

Salt to taste;

For the usili/Dal mixture:

Toor dal - 1/2 cup

Dry red chillies - 4

Salt to taste

Asafoetida - a pinch

Procedure:

Wash Poha several times.Drain the water completely.Let it stand for 20 minutes.

Make the usili as mentioned here

In a pan mix the poha and usili together and set on low flame.Adjust the salt and cook till raw smell of Poha goes off.
