Microwave Beans Paruppu Usli | Step by Step Recipes

Happy Sri Rama Navami to all my readers!

Panakam and Vada pappu are the Neivedyam that I made for today. Please check last year's Srirama Navami Pooja for the recipes.


Beans Paruppu Usili is one of my favorite poriyals that gets featured much in Tamil weddings. I make this poriyal in couple of different ways. Making it in Microwave was quite easy and you can spend your time doing something else.

Traditionally you steam the lentils before grating them. That version will follow suit. For today you can enjoy the microwave version.

Lataji wanted us to make a lunch box menu using Microwave for Microwave Easy Cooking event that she is guest hosting. And I am delighted to send her this dish.


Step by Step pictures

Bengal gram dal soaked, and to be ground with red chilies
 Ground dals
Finely chopped beans microwaved at 6 mins
Heat 1 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves and micro for 1 min. then add the ground paste and micro for 3 - 4 mins
End of the cooking time, it has to appear well done, check and keep it for another minute if required.
Add the cooked beans to the dal and microwave for another 2 mins.

Mix well and it's all done.
Since I wanted it to come out very dry, I used the tray and spread it over it and microwaved for a minute. Though this is metal, for a minute using it is not a problem.






Ingredient Needed:

Beans, finely chopped - 2 cups
Bengal gram - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Red Chilies - 3-4 nos
Mustard Seeds, Urad dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 3-4

Method to prepare:

Wash and soak the dal for 15 mins.

Grind it to a coarse paste.

Finely chop the beans and microwave for 7 mins.

Then add 1 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves. then add the ground paste. Microwave for 3-4 mins. Check if it done.

Then add the cooked beans, mix well. Microwave for 2 more.

Beans paruppu Usli is ready to be served.


Enjoy for your lunch!

In Andhra, the dish is patoli. :)Thanks for this wonderful idea. I too steam the ground paste and it takes longer. 5 minutes in microwave sounds just awesome.
