Paruppu usili is a very popular brahmin recipe which is ground, steamed and mixed with kothavarangai, beans, vazhaipoo and ammini kozhakkattai. It is rich in protein and is a better substitute for coconut green chilli mixture that we use for making poriyal or upperi. Its so easy to make. Though i have made it many times, missed to post this recipe and finally doing it.
