Broccoli Paruppu Usili

Paruppu usili is a traditional south Indian dish. Usili is mostly done with beans, broccoli usili is totally different and equally tasty compared to beans usili. I don't like broccoli before making this dish but now I am making this dish at least twice a month. Those who love beans usili try this broccoli usili you would love this one too . Beans usili has it own taste cant beat that but broccoli is equally good, it has aroma of broccoli in it. This is wonderful combination with sambar rice or curd curry(mor kozhambu )

Broccoli - 2 cup cut to a small florets
Thur Dal - 1/2 cup
Red chili - 2
Cumin seed - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - 1 pinch
Salt to taste
oil - 2 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Soak thur dal for 30 mins and grind together with cumin seed, asafoetida and red chili to coarse paste. Microwave broccoli in high for 3 mins and set aside. In a non-stick pan pour oil and season it with mustard seeds and when mustard crackle add the grinder paste and keep mixing for 2 to 3 mins and then add the microwaved broccoli to it and add salt and keep mixing until dal is nice golden brown. Server with sambar rice. Enjoy!!!!
