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.
